Alyssa Siegel is the clinical director and owner of Path to Progress Speech Solutions. She leads her team of 16 speech-language pathologists in providing therapy, screenings and diagnostic evaluations to the pediatric population throughout Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs.
“I always knew that I wanted to work with kids and help people,” Siegel said. “It brings the worlds of health care and education together in a way that was the perfect fit for me.”
Siegel provides professional development workshops in preschools, daycares and private schools to help educators better identify students in need of speech and language intervention.
Siegel’s professional passions are working with children with autism spectrum disorders, genetic/chromosomal syndromes, speech sound/phonological disorders, and helping children find their voices with AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) devices.
Alyssa serves as the vice president of education on the Gesher L’Torah Board of Trustees.
Since her election in 2017, she has provided guidance and feedback to both the GLT Preschool and the Pearl Sutton Religious School. As the Jewish population continues to grow in the Northern suburbs and families continue to search for outlets to connect to their Judaism, Siegel has found her roles with family programming and education to be both rewarding and enriching.
Alyssa is a graduate of the University of Florida where she double majored in Communication Sciences & Disorders and linguistics, and minored in education. She completed her Master of Arts degree in speech language pathology at New York University.
She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and a professional license and teaching certificate in Speech Language Pathology from the State of Georgia.
“My ultimate goal is to give children the tools and strategies they need to find their own paths so that they can make progress and achieve,” she said. “In the same way, if we provide children with a strong foundation, they will find their own paths through their Jewish identities.”
Alyssa lives in Alpharetta with her husband Matthew and two children, Ella and Brandon.
