Tara Cassidy, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL

Tara Cassidy received her Masters of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in 2003.Over the years, she has worked in a variety of settings. Tara has spent the past 10 years working in public education. When Tara first began working in public education, her time was split between working in a program designed for students with emotional and behavioral disorders and one designed for students with ASD. This is where she began to develop a love of language development as well as witness first-hand the everyday impact a language disorder has on a child’s academic and social success. That is what drove her to pursue Board Certification. Tara is now working towards certification as a dyslexia specialist because she believes that a holistic approach to language development through written and oral language yields the highest level of success.
