Justin's academic experiences have allowed him to work with a plethora of children from different cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.

Other clinical experience includes an emergent literacy program, speech/language/hearing screenings for at-risk kindergarteners in the Kalamazoo Public School district, work as a summer-camp clinician at a speech and language camp in Weston Oregon, and worked as a part-time elementary school clinician with children who experience fluency, articulation, language, and social skill disorders.
