Chloe Ratchford
Speech Language Pathologist, M.S., CCC-SLP

Chloé attended Towson University where she received her Bachelors of Science in 2017 in both Deaf Studies and Speech Language Pathology/Audiology, as well as her M.S. at Gallaudet University in 2019 in Speech Language Pathology. She most recently worked at Fort Washington Rehab and Medical Center where she worked with adult and geriatric patients involving swallowing (dysphagia), expressive/receptive language (aphasia/agraphia/alexia), TBI, cognition, and tracheostomy.

She has treated patients at Shady Grove Outpatient Rehabilitation Hospital and Shady Grove Cancer Center for dysphagia, aphasia, Traumatic Brain Injury, voice, dysarthria and general cognitive rehabilitation. She has also treated patients in acute settings, Prince George’s County Hospital and Autumn Lake at Bridge Park – ICU – regarding ventilator/tracheostomy care, PMSV (Passy Muir Speaking Valve) and dysphagia.

In addition, Chloé has provided care for pediatrics in school settings, working with children of varying ages (6 months – 14 years of age) and varying neurological disorders for articulation, phonological disorders, expressive /receptive language, pragmatics, autism, as well as for those children who are deaf and hard of hearing. She is fluent in American Sign Language and encourages the use and preservation of  ASL for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, though she happily embraces those who choose to add an additional modality of communication through spoken English.  In addition, Chloé has completed training in PROMPT (PROMPTS for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) to assist with an array of articulation/phonological and neurological disorders.
