Do you own any SLP merchandise?!
It is one of the best ways to advocate for ourselves and our field!
I am excited to be talking about this on today’s episode with my guest, Brittany Jackson.
Dr. Brittany Mallard-Jackson is a school based Speech Language Pathologist who recently received her Doctorate of Education in Special Education from Nova Southeastern University. Her research is titled, “A Study of General Education Teachers’ Perceptions of Including Students With Emotional Behavior Disorders in the General Education Classroom in Elementary Schools”.
Her future goal is to reduce the amount of African American Students referred for special education through advocating and education. Dr. Brittany Mallard-Jackson is from Ludowici, Georgia but currently resides in Middle Georgia. She has a bachelors and master's in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Ga (currently GSU). Dr. Jackson is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc!
