Amy McKay Gehan, M.A., CCC-SLPAmy McKay Gehan, M.A., CCC-SLP is a wife and mother to a wonderful son. In Amy’s free time, she can be found at her son’s soccer games or Taekwondo, riding her bike with her family, or playing with her two dogs.
Amy has a very positive approach to therapy. Amy believes “each person has strengths that can help them excel once they are identified during a comprehensive evaluation.” Amy develops individualized therapy goals that target the strengths and growth areas of each patient.

This knowledge enables patients to complete the same types of activities at home. In addition, Amy partners with physicians, teachers, social workers, counselors, psychologists, and other key people in a patient’s life to increase the knowledge and success of therapy.
Amy co-founded Achieve Hearing & Rehabilitation in 2005 to help people achieve a balanced life. Amy has over 20 years of experience working with children and adults. Prior to opening Achieve Hearing & Rehabilitation Amy worked in private practice, hospital, and residential care settings.
Over the years Amy has had the opportunity to partner with several companies, organizations, and the Texas Speech and Hearing Association (TSHA) to provide education about central auditory processing disorders, speech development, language development, effective techniques to increase communication, aural rehabilitation, picky eaters, and dysphagia (swallowing), and public speaking.
