Sherri Miller, MS, CCC-SLP, is a certified and licensed speech-language pathologist who began her work with individuals on the autism spectrum in private, school, birth-to-three, and medical settings after she obtained her bachelor of science degree from the University of Washington (with distinction in speech and hearing sciences & cum laude) in 1994 and master of science degree from the University of Arizona in 1996. When she and her husband, Jeff, were blessed with a child on the spectrum, she gathered various treatment skills including but not limited to neurofeedback and certification in Relationship Development Intervention®. As a homeschooling veteran of over 16 years, she offers a unique perspective of how to support parents who wish to play a central role in guiding their child's development. Sherri is continuously learning and sharing new research and has earned ASHA ACES awards in 2020 and 2022 for continuing education.
