Denise A. Gage, MA, CCC/SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT, President, Primary Speech-Language Pathologist

Mrs. Gage is a board licensed, certified speech-language pathologist and licensed spoken language specialist, LSLS, and certified auditory-verbal therapist. Her practice was established in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area in September of 1986.

Mrs. Gage received her Bachelor of Science degree in speech and hearing from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. She earned her Master of Arts degree in speech-language pathology at the University of Texas at Austin where she specialized in aural habilitation. She was one of the first therapists to become certified as an auditory-verbal therapist in July of 1994.

As an auditory-verbal therapist, Mrs. Gage believes strongly that every family should be informed of the educational options available to hearing impaired children; and further that each family has a right to choose the option that they feel is appropriate for their family and/or child. It is her personal bias that an auditory-verbal approach be selected as the first option. She feels that parental involvement is critical to the success of any program and insists on parent participation in therapy sessions.

Mrs. Gage has had extensive professional, as well as personal involvement with the hearing impaired. Her brother and two sisters are profoundly deaf. She has served as a Board member of the Texas Alexander Graham Bell Association and as a member of the Texas Speech and Hearing Association for the Hearing Impaired Task Force.
