Traci Flannery, M.A., CCC-SLP is a nationally certified and Colorado licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. She completed her Bachelors of Health Science Degree in Communication Disorders at Governors State University in Illinois before moving to Colorado to complete her Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Northern Colorado. Traci maintains a Certificate of Clinical Competency from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and is a member of the Colorado Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She has been a Colorado resident for 17 years and is excited to open a private practice to offer patients and families a more individualized treatment plan and personalized service.
Prior to private practice, Traci worked in hospital and rehab settings treating patients with diagnoses such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, tracheostomy, concussion, head and neck cancer, and degenerative diseases such as MS and Parkinson's. During that time, she obtained specialized training in neuro-muscular reeducation for speech and swallowing, tracheostomy and speaking valves, and video-fluoroscopic assessment of swallowing. Traci collaborated with neurologists and neuro-psychologists, honing her skills in assessing and treating patients with cognitive impairments from traumatic brain injury. She has worked in the Jefferson County school district with elementary school aged children and at the pre-school level with the State of Colorado's early intervention program, Child Find.
Traci applies her extensive experience to a variety of treament methods, combining traditional therapies with modern technology. She fully believes that developing relationships with patients and their families is an essential part of successful therapy.
While Traci has called Colorado HOME since 1999, she grew up in Minnesota and continues to find it difficult choosing a side on the rare occasion the Broncos play the Vikings. When not at work, Traci enjoys spending time with her family and new German Shepard puppy, and looks forward to conquering her next Colorado fourteen-er!
