Virginia Cheng, M.S., CCC-SLP

Virginia Cheng

Hi there! My name is Virginia and I have been a licensed speech/language pathologist since 2019. What I love most about my career is the connections I get to make with my students/clients and their families. I have been fortunate enough to work with individuals who present with a variety of diagnoses, ranging from school-age children with articulation, fluency, autism, and language disorders to adults with fluency disorders and aphasia.

More about Virginia:

When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my husband and our three furbabies (two cats and a dog). I also enjoy crafting, working on/learning how to DIY house projects, and spending time in the mountains.

About

Virginia

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I became aware of the speech/language pathology field shortly after my grandmother had a stroke. Accompanying her to her therapy sessions peaked my interest so much that I made the decision to apply to graduate school after having graduated from college eight years prior.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I am passionate about this work because it allows me to empower students to find ways of learning that work best for them. We don't all learn the same way and that is okay! When students know what learning style works best for their individual needs, they can advocate for that in the classroom and, by doing so, take part ownership of their education.

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment (or counseling/therapy)?

I would advise the family to go into the process with an open-mind and to understand the end goal is not to put a 'label' on your child but to gather information to better inform those working with your child on how to best support them.
