Ashley Jang


Honolulu, Hawaii


Ashley graduated from Harding University in 2012 with a Master’s degree in speech-language pathology. During and after graduate school, Ashley had the opportunity to practice speech-language pathology in Zambia, Africa, focusing on feeding therapy and language stimulation in infants and toddlers, as well as research in pediatric speech and language development. She used her research to help develop the first ever articulation screening tool for Chitonga-speaking children in this region with a team of speech-language pathologists and linguists. She was also involved with an organization that helped to develop the first speech-language pathology graduate program in Zambia. She has experience working in a wide variety of settings with both pediatrics and adults, including early intervention, private clinics, schools, hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities, as well as home and community-based services.

She is a Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) Words for Life Partner and has received training in augmentative and alternative communication through the Center for AAC & Autism. She has completed additional training in Interactive Metronome (IM), Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), Natural Language Acquisition on the Autism Spectrum (NLA), the Greenspan Floortime Approach (DIR/Floortime), and the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding.

Ashley has lived on Oahu since early 2015. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, crafting, yoga, and paddle boarding.
