Emily Sharpe, M.A., CCC-SLP obtained her Bachelor’s degree in 2006 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her Master’s degree in 2008 from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has specialized in working with children and adults who stutter for ten years. In 2013, she was chosen to attend the Stuttering Foundation’s workshop Using Cognitive Approaches with People who Stutter. For six years, she facilitated the NC Triad chapter of the National Stuttering Association. Emily lead a group of Guilford County School speech-language pathologists who partnered with the National Stuttering Association for four years to hold local Family Fun Day workshops for children who stutter and their families. She also enjoys sharing her expertise with other speech-language pathologists by presenting at both the local and state levels. “I am passionate about supporting people who stutter and their families. My approach is to not only work on strategies to manage stuttering, but to also look at the emotions that can surround stuttering. Our goal is to determine what being an effective communicator means to each person who stutters and how we can work together towards that goal.”Meet the Team
I wanted you to know that over the holidays my family here in Michigan could not believe how our grandchild’s speech has improved. Not only the letter sounds, but we all noticed that she no longer stuttered. We were absolutely amazed at how she had improved in such a short time. Thank you for all that you did. It is obvious that you must enjoy your work and you are indeed gifted at what you do. The school district is fortunate to have such an excellent teacher.
The mother says that her child has progressed so much since seeing Choua. She says so much so that even her skeptical mother has had to admit that Choua has been able to get him to do things that she did not think he would be able to do. She wanted to say how grateful she was to Choua for helping her son. She says that it has been life changing.
I’m so thankful for Mr. Chris and how he has helped our oldest son make leaps and bounds in his language. I can understand him, and he talks my ears off now.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the personal attention and support you gave him (and our family) when you worked with our son. You were encouraging, patient, honest, and thorough. I am SO grateful for the work you did with him and I just wanted to make sure you knew that.
