Alicia Pattillo, M.S. CCC-SLP has been part of the ACCESS Academy team for 11 years and currently works as the speech-language pathologist for clients in the Lower 2 classroom, as well as outpatient clients. Alicia loves helping her students enjoy learning. She loves to share jokes and makes it a goal for her students to know what the phrases “you’re pulling my leg” and “shake a leg” mean, among many others. Alicia enjoys all aspects of speech and language skills, especially helping students develop and maintain friendships through conversations, games, and fun activities. She believes books are an essential part of learning and can be used to teach any skill needed for speech and language development.
Prior to joining ACCESS, Alicia worked at a private school in Little Rock as a speech-language pathologist. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Baylor University (Sic’em Bears!). Alicia is certified in the DuBard Association Method and trained in a variety of speech, language, and feeding-based interventions.
Alicia's favorite part of working for ACCESS is seeing her clients gain confidence and pride in the work they accomplish. Self-confidence is needed to accomplish any goal, and she loves to ensure students believe in themselves. When she is not at ACCESS, Alicia loves to explore Arkansas (preferably hiking or kayaking), travel to new places, and serve as the Young Life Capernaum team leader.
