About Michelle

Michelle L. W. Dawson, MS CCC-SLP, CLC has had the pleasure of residing in Columbia, SC since 2012.  She completed her BS in Speech Language Pathology from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA in 2005, and her MS in Communicative Sciences and Disorders from James Madison University in 2009.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude from both universities.  She started her career in 2006 as an SLPA in a rural public school with an average caseload of 56 students. Upon completion of her MS, she went to work for Riverside Walter Reed Hospital where she was the first full-time SLP in the hospital’s history.  At this location, she advocated for implementation of an oral care protocol, establishment of ST involvement/treatment of oncology patients with the “Tumor Board”, as well as advocacy for establishment of MBSS capabilities at the facility.

Michelle’s dedication to the field, advocacy, and eager-to-learn spirit were recognized by ASHA, when she was 1 of 30 applicants from the nation accepted into the 2016-2017 Leadership Cohort, where she worked to hone her craft as a leader. Michelle also serves as the Treasurer for the Council of State Association Presidents (CSAP) 2018-2020. This opportunity will allow Michelle the privilege of working with other volunteer leaders from State Associations and ASHA to collaborate and effect change for current challenges facing the fields of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology.
 

 

Michelle is an accomplished lecturer and has written and given numerous ASHA approved CEU lectures on such topics as Infantile Spasm and Oropharyngeal Dysphagia, Best Practices for Early Intervention, Chasing the Pediatric Swallow, Down Syndrome and Pediatric Dysphagia, along with Apps and ST, and co-authored a course on Best Practices in EI.  She has also given an AOTA-approved lecture on Sensory Integration from the SLP perspective.  Michelle has delivered lectures at several SCSHA Conventions and twice with the SCATP Expo. She currently travels with PESI, Inc. as a national lecturer on “Pediatric Dysphagia” and has several webinars with SpeechTherapyPD.com all of which are available for CEUs.​
