Elizabeth Vosseller, M.A., CCC-SLP

Speech Language Pathologist and Education Specialist
Director, Growing Kids Therapy Center

Elizabeth Vosseller has been a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist since 1995. 

Elizabeth began her career at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC where she began to specialize in autism. From there, Elizabeth spent twelve years as an Assistant Professor at The George Washington University teaching more than twenty different courses to undergraduate and graduate students in both Speech and Hearing Sciences and the Graduate School of Education and Human Development. Elizabeth developed a passion for clinical training through her work with field supervision and training to teachers and SLPs during their graduate studies.

Elizabeth’s greatest joy is working directly children and families so she opened her full time private practice, Growing Kids Therapy Center (GKTC) in Herndon, Virginia. In 2013 Elizabeth began using low and high-tech Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), teaching students the purposeful motor skills to Spell to Communicate. GKTC offers individual and group therapy, Occupational Therapy and purposeful motor, and has grown to a staff of six.  Elizabeth hosts interns from varied service fields and developed the Accessing Community Through Spelling (ACTS) professional development program which produces a network of rigorously trained practitioners prepared to work with clients of all profiles.
