ASHLEY ROMERO, M.S., CCC-SLP
Director and Speech Pathologist
Ashley is native of New Jersey, but now calls South Florida her home. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland in Hearing and Speech Sciences and Public Relations. Prior to becoming a speech-language pathologist, Ashley worked in a self-contained, ABA-based school in New Jersey where she worked with Pre-K and elementary aged children on the autism spectrum. This is where she discovered her passion to work with children with autism. Ashley went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Speech Language Pathology from Florida Atlantic University. While completing her Master’s, Ashley continued to provide ABA therapy and completed the requirements to sit for the BCaBA exam (certification pending).
Prior to founding Bridging the Pieces Therapy, Ashley worked in a variety of settings including charter and private schools, hospitals, and outpatient clinics. She is motivated to provide successful therapy that is enjoyable to her clients and family. Ashley loves providing children with a method to communicate, so her experience working with AAC devices has been an essential skill to her therapy sessions. She is also a PROMPT-trained therapist.
Ashley is a licensed speech-language pathologist and is credentialed through the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). She has a passion for helping children improve their speech and language skills to promote effective and functional communication.
