Alexandra Torget M.Ed., CCC-SLP joined Monkey Mouths in 2010 and has been practicing as a speech-language pathologist for over 12 years. Alexandra began her career at Children’s Hospital of Richmond, Virginia where she provided medically-based diagnostic and treatment services to an outpatient pediatric population. Alexandra also worked in an adult long-term acute care hospital and has been able to apply her adult neurological experience to the pediatric population.
Alexandra’s extensive training includes PROMPT/Advanced PROMPT Bridging, the Sound Card System, and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech with Edythe Strand, Ph.D., CCC-SLP. She has been able to utilize this training in working with children with motor planning disorders as well as children with low muscle tone.
Since joining the Monkey Mouths team, Alexandra has completed training with Deborah Beckman, M.S., CCC-SLP, Talk Tools Oral Placement Therapy and Lori Overland M.S., CCC-SLP for oral-motor placement and sensory-motor feeding disorders.

Alexandra enjoys working with children with fluency disorders and has completed Preschool Fluency Training by Nina Reardon-Reeves M.S., CCC-SLP. Alexandra believes successful therapy is achieved by working closely with the patient, their families, and other professionals as well as having an element of fun and laughter during therapy. Alexandra lives in Denton with her husband and two children.
