Outpatient Speech Therapist

My name is Catherine Brown and I have been practicing as a speech language pathologist since July 2016. I received by undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Science from The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!), followed by my Masters in Speech Language Pathology from University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I worked in a large public high school for 5.5 years, helping students gain access to their education through self-advocacy, access to communication modalities and gaining necessary language skills to participate in school. I love working with kids and adolescents, especially supporting complex communicators in their journey to find out what communication styles and modalities work for them. I hope to be able to build relationships with patients and their families through open dialogue and positive, patient driven therapies—speech therapy is pretty great that way…you can talk about anything!



Outpatient Speech Therapist

I graduated from Ball State University in 2017 with my B.S. in Speech Pathology and a minor in Developmental Psychology. Following graduation, I worked as an RBT in an ABA facility and an Instructional Assistant in a public school based preschool program. In 2019, I went back to school and received my M.A in Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Cincinnati in 2021. Since becoming an SLP, I have worked in a rural outpatient clinic serving families across all areas of speech and on the Outpatient Feeding Team at Riley Hospital for Children. Through Pediplay, I am able to pursue all of my interest by serving families in the clinic and through First Steps. My biggest area of interest is supporting families with complex medical needs affecting feeding and swallowing. I am trained in the SOS approach to feeding, SOFFI method for infant feeding, and am a Certified Lactation Counselor. I love getting to work with families to tackle their mealtime struggles, develop safe feeding skills, and grow to enjoy food that builds lasting family memories. In addition to feeding/swallowing, I love working with families to develop early communication skills, support articulation development, and explore Augmentative and Alternative Communication to help children reach their full potential. The most important part of being an SLP to me is to build a strong relationship with my families, and for them to feel seen, heard, and supported through their therapy journey.

When I’m not working, I spend my free time powerlifting, baking, reading cheesy books, watching docuseries with my husband, and snuggling my two fur babies.

Outpatient Speech Therapist/ Assistant Clinic Director

I completed my undergraduate education at Indiana University in communication sciences and disorders and I received my M.S. in Speech Pathology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. During my education, I worked first hand with children and their families in the clinical setting as well as in a research lab that focused on discovering how young children learn words. I loved this experience and following it, I gained an appreciation for the importance of using the latest research in my practice. I also gained experience during my graduate schooling working in an Augmentative and Assistive Communication (AAC) lab where completed evaluations and the funding process to feature match communication systems to children and adults with complex communication needs. I have completed 4 years of course work in American Sign Language, and I can use basic sign language. I have been lucky enough to work with adults and children over my career, and I have been a member of the Pediplay team since 2018. I am also a member of the American Speech and Language Association. I feel passionate about working with children with complex communication needs and feeding difficulties. I love working using a team approach pairing with your family and other therapists to help your child achieve their goals!

Outpatient Speech Therapist

My name is Claire Hatton and I am so grateful to work for PediPlay after being a student here. I graduated with my Masters of Science in Speech Language Pathology at Saint Mary's College and my undergraduate degree from The University of Alabama. My passion is to work with children with a variety of disorders, including kids with complex communication needs and feeding difficulties. I also enjoy finding alternative ways for children to communicate through AAC. My goal is to create strong relationships with the families I work with as well as their child and to create a fun/safe environment for them to succeed and work towards their goals.



Outpatient Speech Therapist

I grew up knowing I was a little different, but I didn’t know why. By the time I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at 22, I was already working on my Master’s in Bilingual Speech Pathology at Indiana University. Having an insider’s perspective has helped me in my work with kids on the Autism Spectrum. My specialty is in treatment of language disorders in bilingual children. I am fluent in French, Spanish, and German, and I speak some Mandarin, Farsi, and American Sign Language. My goal is to become proficient in Burmese Chin.

I'm thrilled to be a part of the PediPlay family after completing my graduate school clinical work here! I completed my undergraduate degree at Butler University (Go Dawgs!) and received my M.S. in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences from Saint Louis University. I have experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, developmental delays, and phonological disorders. Everyone deserves a voice and I look forward to working with you and your child to help them find theirs! When I'm not in the clinic I enjoy spending time with family, trying new restaurants, and watching Butler basketball.



Outpatient Speech Therapist

I received my B.A. in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN and my M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology with a Bilingual Spanish-English certification from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. Throughout my education, I gratefully had the opportunity to complete a pediatric feeding and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) course while building my clinical experience within a variety of speech and language disorders in the monolingual and bilingual pediatric population. Soy bilingüe! I am a heritage, fluent speaker of Spanish and have become passionate about building my clinical expertise in treatment for Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders across the monolingual and bilingual population. I am so eager to work alongside families in helping children reach their full potential!


Recibí mi B.A. en Ciencias del Habla y Audición de la Universidad de Indiana en Bloomington, IN y mi M.S. en Patología del Habla y Lenguaje con una certificación bilingüe Español-Inglés de la Universidad de Marquette en Milwaukee, WI. A lo largo de mi educación, tuve la oportunidad de completar un curso de alimentación pediátrica y Comunicación Alternativa Aumentada (AAC) mientras desarrollaba mi experiencia clínica dentro de una variedad de trastornos del habla y el lenguaje en la población pediátrica monolingüe y bilingüe. Hablo español con fluidez y herencia y me apasiona desarrollar mi experiencia clínica en el tratamiento de los Trastornos Miofuncionales Orofaciales en la población monolingüe y bilingüe. ¡Estoy tan ansiosa de trabajar junto con las familias para ayudar a los niños a alcanzar su máximo potencial!



Outpatient Speech Therapist

Growing up, I was fortunate to see the positive impact of speech therapy on two of my close family members, prompting me to pursue a career in helping others find their voice. I graduated with a Masters in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Kentucky in 2020. I have experience working in the public school system as well as outpatient pediatric setting. I am passionate about collaborating with caregivers and other therapists to help children reach their communication goals. I take special interest in early language development, neurodiversity, and augmentative and alternative communication. Whether it is hearing a child say their siblings name for the first time, helping a child with complex needs discover which communication modality works best for them, or seeing the pride on a child’s face when they produce a new speech sound, I love to celebrate the little victories that add up to achieving long term goals! When I’m not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews, playing with my dog, cheering on the Wildcats, and trying new local restaurants.
