What one of our students has to say!

“Recently, I have had the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience as a Speech-Language Pathology graduate clinician at APT. One of the greatest benefits of my placement here is learning across therapy disciplines. From day one, I felt the welcoming team atmosphere. I have had the privilege to observe many professionals and to learn from their clinical experience. It is also amazing to see them navigate a pandemic with such care and perseverance. They are flexible, prepared, and fun!

Additionally, APT has introduced me to wonderful kids and their families who work hard and enjoy spending time at the clinic every week. Their smiles and growth spur me on to continue helping them reach their goals!

I cannot wait to continue gaining insight from my supervisors and others as I complete my last rotation over the next few months. After receiving my diploma in May, I know that I will always use the techniques that I learned at APT.”
