picture of Jess AustinWelcome! 

I am the speech-language pathologist for Early Childhood and Redwood Middle and High school.  I am thrilled to be working with birth-3, preschool, middle school, and high school students!  I work with students on a variety of communication skills including: vocabulary, grammar, social language skills, voice, fluency, and articulation.  I also help complete speech/language assessments for the early childhood and middle/high school.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have about your child's ability to listen or speak by email at or by phone at 507-644-7258 (early childhood) or 507-644-8276 (middle/high school).   

During the summer months, I will continue to service birth-3 and students who qualify for summer services.  I will be periodically checking my email over the summer months and this is the best way to contact me.   


I graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology in 2011.  I obtained my Masters in Communication Sciences and Disorders from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minnesota in 2014.  I also have my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association.

I continue to be an advocate for and very interested in continuing my education to more effectively service your child!  I am currently certified in Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS) along with PROMPT (a system for providing physical feedback for speech sound production). 

This is my fifth year as a speech-language pathologist and my third year in Redwood Falls.  I am thrilled to be in the area, and I'm looking forward to a great year!  

I look forward to working with you!
