Rachel Rhame, MS, CCC-SLP
Rachel is a passionate pediatric speech language pathologist who has clinical experience with early intervention and school-age populations. She believes it is crucial to build rapport with the families she serves while implementing parent-coaching strategies in the child’s natural environment. She strives to provide individualized therapy through routine-based intervention and interactive, child-led, play-based therapy.
Rachel's experience with the pediatric population includes treating children with autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, articulation delays, phonological disorders, dysphagia, receptive and expressive delays, and developmental delays. Throughout her clinical experience, she has treated children in a variety of settings, including schools, daycares, homes, and clinics. She is eager to receive additional training in pediatric feeding therapy to grow in her clinical skills and to serve more children in the Raleigh area.
Rachel is in her clinical fellowship year and anticipates being licensed by the North Carolina Board of Examiners and her certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) in 2023. Rachel has a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Carolina University. She recently received her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Francis Marion University in Florence, SC.
During her free time, Rachel enjoys spending time outdoors with her friends and family, whether that is hiking, being on the water, picnics, or traveling to new places. She also finds joy in cooking, binge watching Netflix occasionally, and being a dog mom to her Australian shepherd, Pinto Bean.
