Who's Chris Wenger (a.k.a. Speech Dude)?
I'm an enthusiastic, neuordivergent high school SLP and internationally-acclaimed presenter who’s on a mission to improve the way we assess our autistic kids.
I love sharing neurodiversity-affirming techniques and practical ways to infuse them into therapy for autistic students, and I encourage fellow clinicians to be the best versions of themselves, while inspiring their students to do the same!
Let's transform your speech therapy by...
✔ Supporting autistic kids with a model that accepts neurodiverstiy.
✔ Collecting better data that targets a positive self-identity, allows autistic students to be their true authentic self, and aims for long-term happiness...
✔ Making assessments more engaging and fun!
✔ And much more!
