about me

Sarah Carter, M.A. CCC-SLP

I am a speech language pathologist currently serving the pediatric population ages birth through young adulthood.  I am nationally accredited through ASHA (American Speech Hearing Association) and hold state licenses to practice speech language pathology in Colorado and Missouri. 


I received my graduate degree from the University of Maine in 2013.   I have experience with childhood apraxia of speech, articulation, phonologically-based language difficulties, autism spectrum (ASD), low intelligibility, language-literacy learners, and other speech, expressive language, receptive language, and pragmatic (social) language difficulties. 


My undergraduate studies included French Language and Linguistic/Cultural Anthropology, from Temple University in 2007.  Originally from Maine, I have also lived in Vermont, Philadelphia and Europe, as well as backpacked across New Zealand. 


I moved to Montrose, Colorado in 2017 to explore the mountains and mesas and build a life in this colorful playground.  In 2021 we moved to Missouri to be near family with our infant son. 


When not researching to learn more about language and communication, I can be found outside enjoying all that nature has to offer.  I look forward to meeting you!

HSAs, credit card or check accepted

A superbill will be provided upon request for insurance reimbursement by the family.  The family is responsible for knowing the details of their chosen insurance plan.  A referral for speech/language evaluation and treatment is recommended (free form available), and each family is encouraged to find if prior authorization is necessary and if there is any limit to sessions per year, as well as if Speech/Language therapy is covered.  

Client 6

Medicaid- Colorado

I now accept Colorado medicaid.  Clients with medicaid will need a physician's order for speech/language evaluation and/or treatment (contact Speech & Language Learners for free referral form) prior to their initial evaluation.  If you are not sure if a referral is needed, a free 30-min screening and consultation is available for medicaid recipients.  Medicaid will be billed directly on behalf of the client, copays expected at time of service.

Telepractice options are available for families who prefer to have sessions in the comfort of their home.  All you need is a computer, solid internet connection and optional headphones, we provide the rest!
