  • I’m Tiffany Davis, M.S., CCC-SLP and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2017 after teaching Kindergarten in Plano ISD for 3 years.  I attended University of North Texas for undergrad and University of Texas at Dallas for grad school.  I began my career as a speech-language pathologist at The Warren Center, where I focused on Early Childhood Intervention for the first year and then transitioned to their private clinic.  There I worked with pre-school and school aged children with a variety of speech, language and feeding needs.

    I believe that children learn best through play, so my sessions are centered around play activities in order to target each child’s individual goals while creating a fun and motivating learning experience. I also believe that family involvement is a key part of successful therapy and I collaborate with caregivers to create strategies they can use at home to continue their child’s progress outside of the therapy room. In my free time I enjoys cooking, swimming, and spending time with my husband, Tim and my daughter, Brooklyn.

    As an SLP with over 6 years of experience, I have training and specialization in the following:

    • Sound Card System
    • PROMPT therapy/Advanced PROMPT Bridging

  • Fort Worth
  • I’m Kim Dillon, M.A., CCC-SLP and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2014 as a speech-language pathologist. I attended Texas A&M University for undergrad and the University of North Texas for graduate school.  Before joining the Monkey Mouths team I worked in public schools, where I evaluated and treated children ages 3-18 with speech and language disorders. I also created and monitored Individualized Education Plans for each student and served on an interdisciplinary Autism assessment team, evaluating and providing recommendations for students.

    I have a passion for giving children a means to communicate.  I enjoy creating a plan that is meaningful and specific for each child using the different skills and knowledge I’ve received over the years.  My husband, Levi and I have 3 young boys and in my free time I enjoy exercising, reading, swimming, and spending time with my family.

  • Fort Worth
  • I’m Paige Faulder, M.S., CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2016.  I earned my undergraduate and masters degrees from TCU and began my career at Cook Children’s Medical Center. During my time at Cook, I 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. I 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.

    I 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, I became a Listening and Spoken Language Specialist, Certified Auditory-Verbal Therapist (LSLS Cert. AVT).  In addition to providing direct AVT services at Cook, I also supervised graduate student interns, clinical fellows and new hires.  From 2012-2013, I served as the Rehab Services Clinic Lead.

    In 2016, in addition to being a member of the Monkey Mouths team, I was also a Clinical Supervisor at the Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders at TCU. I supervised 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.

    I strongly believe that active parent participation and parent coaching in therapy sessions are key components to successful listening and spoken language outcomes. My husband, Chase and I have a young son and daughter. We love spending time together as a family, especially when it involves cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs!

    I love working with kids and received speech therapy myself as a child. My sorority supervisor was an SLP and I shadowed her frequently and fell in love.  I love the joy children get when they receive therapy that is fun and creative. I also love seeing how parents fight for their children and help them get to their highest potential.
