She has combined this experience with her knowledge of language development and her education from Vincent Carbone PhD, ABA, Mark Sundburg PhD, BCBA, and Tamara Kasper, M.S., CCC-SLP, BCBA in controlling negative behaviors that many times accompany a language disorder to establish well-rounded, success based treatment plans for her patients.

Paige Faulder, M.S., CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT has been working as a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 8 years. Paige began her career at Cook Children’s Medical Center. During her time at Cook, she developed a passion for the hearing impaired population with intervention focusing specifically on developing listening and spoken language skills in infants and children in a family-centered approach. She was a member of the Cochlear Implant Team at Cook and collaborated with ENTs, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and social workers routinely to ensure the delivery of consistent, high-quality patient care. Paige attended the AEI (Alabama Ear Institute) Summer Institute as well as the TCU (Texas Christian University) Listening and Spoken Language Summer Institute, both intensive 2-week training courses consisting of lecture and hands-on practice using Auditory-Verbal techniques and strategies. In 2011, she became a Listening and Spoken Language Specialist, Certified Auditory-Verbal Therapist (LSLS Cert. AVT). In addition to providing direct AVT services at Cook, Paige also supervised graduate student interns, clinical fellows and new hires and in 2012-2013, served as the Rehab Services Clinic Lead.

Paige supervises graduate speech-language pathology student clinicians providing family-centered intervention to children with hearing impairments under the direction of Emily Lund, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Assistant Professor. She strongly believes that active parent participation and parent coaching in therapy sessions are key components to successful listening and spoken language outcomes. Paige and her husband, Chase, have a young son and daughter. They love spending time together as family especially when it involves cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs!
