Amy King, M.S., CCC-SLP has 10+ years of experience treating children and adults in private practice and school settings around the Houston area.  Amy became interested in speech-language pathology as she saw her sister’s speech improve through speech therapy.  Her sister was born with a cleft lip and palate.  Amy often served as an ‘interpreter’ for her sister when they were both young. Now, her sister is a beautiful college graduate who is working in the field of special education!  No one knows how much work she did growing up!

Amy grew up in the Dallas area, went to college in the great city of Lubbock, Texas and made it to Houston in 2007!

Amy is active in the state professional organization (TSHA) and served as a member of the Career Awareness Committee.  She also serves as a Clinical Educator at The University of Houston by working with speech graduate students to gain clinical knowledge and skills.

Amy enjoys water skiing, wake boarding, tubing and floating at the lake with her family and friends.  She likes laughing, dancing and playing games as well as Dallas Cowboy and Texas Tech Football!

Amy King is a miracle maker. Our son was diagnosed with severe Childhood Apraxia of Speech at 2.5 years old. We started with literally one word, mama, and group of sounds. Over the course of three and a half years, he gained words, slowly but surely and by the end of treatment, he was talking like any other kinder prepared child.

Amy always had a smile on her face and was confident in herself and our son’s abilities. He has tested out of both private speech and public school speech and is a leader in his kindergarten class. His teachers are amazed that he ever had a disability as he is constantly talking and raising his hand to answer questions. This child has overcome a huge obstacle, but with the help of Amy and lots of homework, we were able to turn his life around. I would not hesitate to recommend Amy to anyone who needs speech services.
