2023 Barb Conrad Fellowship Grant Recipient : Makayla Martin
Makayla Martin works as a speech language pathologist at South Bloomfield Elementary in Teays Valley local school district. I am employed by the Pickaway County ESC and currently serve students kindergarten through fifth grade. She is a fifth year practicing as a SLP and my fifth year in the district, Makayla completed her undergraduate degree at Ohio University and graduated from the University of Akron with my masters in 2019. Some of her clinical interests are speech sound disorders, literacy and supporting early literacy skills in my speech sound therapy sessions. Makayla’s favorite part of her job is the children - building relationships with them, helping them feel successful and always being entertained by what may come up in our conversations!
Makayla intends to use the grant to pursue further training in literacy/dyslexia through the Orton Gillingham Academy.
