Happy C&FD Anniversary to Logan Carter

Logan Carter MS CCC-SLP is a speech therapist at the Midtown office.  She is celebrating year at Child and Family Development this month.

Inspiration to help others came early for her.  She shares this story:

“When I was in middle school, I would look after my neighbor‚Äôs mother, who had dementia. We would sit together and watch her favorite shows while her daughter would be away. She never remembered my name, who I was, or why I was there. The first time we met, I was wearing my volleyball jersey. She looked at me and said in her southern accent, ‚ÄúVolleyball. Do you play volleyball?‚Äù I replied, ‚ÄúYes ma‚Äôam, I do. Do you like volleyball?‚Äù I would wear my jersey each time I sat with her because I knew she would talk to me about volleyball. I valued the time we shared, the discussions we had, and the opportunity I gave her daughter so she could have a little time for herself. From that day forward, I knew I wanted to help people and their families communicate. That‚Äôs what inspired me to pursue the field of speech and language pathology.”

…and adds: 
“The best part about working at C&FD is being able to provide our families with a multidisciplinary approach to help them meet their individual needs. In the past year, I‚Äôve learned so much from my colleagues, our families and our clients. I can‚Äôt wait to see what this year has to offer!”
