Michelle Lai

M.S, CCC-SLP Speech Language Pathologist

Hi! I'm Michelle

I am an ASHA certified speech-language pathologist from Richardson, Texas and I specialize in working with children. I obtained my B.S. in speech-language pathology and audiology from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2010 and my M.S. in communication disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2012. I have worked in the schools, home health setting and outpatient pediatric therapy clinic, and I obtained vast clinical experience working with children with various communication needs. I have a passion and special interest in early intervention for children from birth to three years of age, childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and autism spectrum disorders. I greatly enjoy the fun and rewarding nature of working with children to help them develop the skills needed to boost their confidence and ability to be successful at communicating, making friends and in all aspects of life. It brings me great joy to see the kids grow and make progress. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking and baking, enjoying the outdoors and community events and exploring new places. I am fluent in basic and conversational Vietnamese.
