Alison Stanley

Speech-Language Pathologist

From an early age, Alison Stanley knew she wanted to be a speech-language pathologist. Her mom is a speech-language pathologist and, every chance she got, Alison would go to work and observe her mom. As a teenager, Alison babysat several of her mom’s patients with special needs in order to give their parents a break. While she attended Fort Hays State University, Alison worked as a personal assistant in both group-home and individual settings through Developmental Services of Northwest Kansas.

After graduating with her Master’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Fort Hays State University, Alison pursued her dream career. She spent nine years at a center for children with special needs providing speech therapy in preschool classrooms and in children’s homes. After her time at there, Alison began working in Pediatrics Services at Heartspring.  Alison enjoys providing weekly themes, which give her clients a variety of experiences to practice their communication skills. These themes are usually focused around a book or a special occasion such as following directions to complete a Mother’s Day card, labeling or identifying animals in “Good Night Gorilla”, expanding their food choices while having a picnic or using communication to request a desired color of frosting to spread on their cupcake during Alison’s birthday week.

In her free time, Alison likes to spend time with her children.  She is also a big KU fan.
