Terriss Conterato, MS, CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist at UW Health. She evaluates and treats children from birth to age 18 who struggle with a wide range of speech and hearing issues.
Terriss’ primary focus is on helping children overcome language delays, articulation and speech sound (phonetics) disorders, stuttering, social communication difference and feeding issues ranging from sucking and drinking from a cup to chewing and swallowing. She also works with hearing impaired children who have cochlear implants, hearing aids and other devices that assist with communication.
Believing that caregivers play a key role in language development, Terriss partners with parents to create appropriate treatment plans. Her goal is to empower families to practice with their children at home using the language techniques they learned in the clinic.
Depending on the child’s needs, Terriss might also refer patients to other specialists and community resources, such as school-based services or early intervention programs.
In her free time, Terriss enjoys gardening, growing houseplants and knitting.
I love helping children learn to communicate and seeing the changes that occur week after week.
