Ryan Dailey is a certified speech and language pathologist working in clinical research at Marcus Autism Center. Ryan received her undergraduate degree in Speech Pathology at The University of West Georgia and her Master’s degree in Communicative Disorders at The University of Alabama.
Ryan began her career at a private practice in Greenville, South Carolina, delivering pediatric speech and language services in an outpatient setting. Soon after, Ryan relocated to her home state of Georgia and joined the outpatient rehabilitation team at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. While at Children's, Ryan evaluated and treated pediatric speech and language disorders with children exhibiting a variety of disorders including articulation disorders, language disorders, phonological disorders, fluency disorders, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), cerebral palsy and childhood apraxia of speech. Ryan also spent time in the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, as well as the Day Rehabilitation program where she treated children with communication disorders associated with a variety of conditions, such as traumatic brain injury and cancer.
After many years of treating and interacting with children with ASD, Ryan made the decision to join the team at Marcus Autism Center with a focus on early detection and early identification of red flags. Ryan devotes much of her time administering communication assessments within longitudinal research protocols designed to investigate the early identification of ASD.
