Rachell Johnson has a Bachelor’s (BA) in Speech Pathology from Columbia College, SC and a Masters in Communication Disorders (MCD) from the U Of SC School Of Public Health. 

 

I have 14 years experience in the field of speech language pathology and have worked as an expert with assistive technology since 2011.  I served as the Pediatric and Adult Neuro AAC Specialist for an outpatient rehab center, transitioning to working with AT and ALS patients with the MN/ND/SD Chapter of the ALS Association's Herbek Sing AT Program as well as consulting for the MN Technology for Home Grant. This led me to become the AT Program Manager of the DC/MD/VA Chapter of ALS Association and working as an AT Team Lead for a school district.  I enjoy teaching, and have presented at Closing the Gap, a national AT conference, 6 times from 2013-2018 as well as a host of other AT symposiums and webinars. Working with eye-gaze users of all ages is just one of my interests and specialty areas under the umbrella of AT.
