Justin Berry (ST)
Justin is a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) who recently moved to the Triangle from Tucson, AZ. Prior to becoming a SLP, Justin was a professional woodwind performer and music teacher. While working as a private lesson teacher, he had the opportunity to work with several children with Asperger syndrome, developmental disabilities, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The richly rewarding experience of introducing these children to the language of music inspired him to study communication disorders and seek a degree in speech-language pathology. While attending graduate school, Justin became fascinated with communication and swallowing disorders due to damage to the brain from stroke, traumatic brain injury, and age related changes. He has worked in a variety of settings including skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living, and home health to deliver a wide range of speech therapy services to those in need. He is still an active music performer and teacher, and lives with his wife, Durham, NC.
