“I enjoy working with children of all ages and allowing them to experience the power that language holds."
Tricia Fredrickson sees pediatric patients for language disorders or delays, autism spectrum disorder, articulation delays and more.
Tricia Fredrickson had always had a love for language and language development. She decided to pursue speech-language pathology when she watched a child with a language delay saying his first word at age four while she was working with children with Autism.
“I enjoy working with children of all ages and allowing them to experience the power that language holds," she said.
She sees pediatric patients with a language disorder or delay, autism spectrum disorder, articulation delays, swallowing disorder, apraxia of speech and alternative or augmentative communication.
“I most enjoy giving children the power to communicate across all aspects of life and supporting their engagement with loved ones," Fredrickson said. “I love getting to play and connect with children daily."
As a provider, she shares that one of the most important elements in providing patient care is play.
“Children learn best within their natural environments, which is play and movement. Understanding each child's play needs allows for a therapeutic approach that best suits their needs and fits within their home routine," she said.
