Jennifer Bauer is a certified speech-language pathologist through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and is licensed in the state of Colorado. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with her bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology and earned her master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Northern Colorado. Originally from North Carolina, she moved to Colorado in 2010 with her husband and two dogs and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains.
Through her work across pediatric settings, including early intervention, public schools, and home health care, Jennifer has gained experience working with children with a variety of communication needs including stuttering, receptive and expressive language, articulation, phonological disorders, childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), social communication, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
Jennifer’s special area of interest is in treatment of stuttering/fluency disorders, a passion that began developing during her undergraduate study as she was taught by a professor who stuttered, and has continued to progress throughout her professional career. Jennifer has received a wide array of training from board recognized specialists in fluency disorders, including participating in an intensive, week-long workshop on stuttering therapy sponsored by the Stuttering Foundation and Boston University. She has also recently become involved with FRIENDS, the National Association of Young People Who Stutter, including co-leading children’s workshops at the 2016 and 2017 annual conventions.
Jennifer has worked with children who stutter through indirect and direct therapy, and is beginning to work with teens and adults who stutter in a support group setting. She is working toward her board certification as a fluency specialist and is a member of the Fluency and Fluency Disorders Special Interest Group through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association.
Jennifer is passionate about providing functional, individualized, and evidence-based therapy for each child by partnering with the family to maximize success.
