Our mission is to help you feel confident in your adult speech therapy job.
We will teach you how to assess, treat, and document in a way that’s effective and evidence-based. But without the stress and overwhelm.
Chung Hwa Brewer, Founder
Howdy! My name is Chung Brewer and I’m a speech-language pathologist and instructor at Western Washington University. I’ve worked in home health, skilled nursing, hospitals, and telehealth.
When starting out as an overwhelmed new grad, I was lucky enough to have wonderful mentors who taught me the ropes. I want to offer the same to you.
When I’m not writing books, you’ll find me enjoying cheesy popcorn and taking gorgeous walks throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Miwa Aparo, Co-founder
Hi, I’m Miwa, co-founder of Adult Speech Therapy and an occupational therapist.
My role as researcher and editor is to ensure that everything we write for you is clear, easy to follow, and evidence-based. When I’m not elbow-deep in research, you can find me traveling or trying amazing food around L.A. Fun fact: Chung and I are sisters!
Alisha Kleindel, MS, CCC-SLP
Hi, I’m Alisha. I’ve been a full-time SLP for 15 years, working with adults in acute care, skilled nursing, outpatient, inpatient rehab, and home health.
What I love most is teaching new clinicians how to do the job. I make educational content here at Adult Speech Therapy, including videos and articles.
I’m certified in LSVT, Vital Stimulation, RMST, and MBSimp. In my free time, I love walking with my dog Lucy and camping with my family near our home in sunny Arizona.
