Speech Therapy In Knoxville


Speech Therapy In Knoxville 

Speech-language therapy is beneficial for both children and adults who experience difficulty with communication and/or feeding. Parents develop concerns when their child is not progressing at the rate of his/her peers. Spouses and caregivers seek referrals if their loved one is struggling to recall and express thoughts. Doctors will order speech therapy evaluations when signs of communication struggle are noticeable. Finding speech therapy in Knoxville then becomes a priority.  

Some physicians may recommend a speech-language evaluation be conducted at a specific facility. However, individuals are often required to independently begin a Google search to seek their own provider, then weed through options and waiting lists.   

I have been a speech-language pathologist for 25 years and have consulted many of my speechie colleagues to compile a list of local speech-language therapy providers. Here is a list of facilities that provide outpatient services:

Tricia Hedinger
Hello! My name is Tricia and I am an associate professor in the Department of Audiology & Speech Pathology at University of Tennessee in Knoxville with specialties in stuttering and early childhood language. I am a mom to 3 girls, including 10 year old twins and a 14 year old, and a stepmom to 2 boys in their twenties. In 2013, my husband, Richard, and I relocated to Knoxville from Delaware. He grew up in NY and I in Pennsylvania. We love the small city feel of Knoxville, the proximity to the mountains and the fantastic community that surrounds us in our Farragut home. We spend our evenings and weekends on the sidelines cheering on our kids in various sporting events. My primary hobby is driving children from one place to another. I have a passion for anti-bullying movements, outdoor education and building support group networks around the world. I host a podcast entitled "Stutter Stories" to help share the voices of people who stutter internationally. I am a huge fan of thinking globally and acting locally. I am glad to be a part of Knoxville Moms and feel inspired when parents connect to take action for the well-being of each other and their children.


  1. Associates in Pediatric Therapy (APT) is another great speech therapy option for many families. Our daughter has gone there for a couple of years and we love her SLP! They offer Speech, OT and PT.
