Speech & Language Services

Speech and swallowing services are provided by our speech language pathologist, Abbie Gacke. Originally from Northwest Iowa, Abbie received her bachelor’s degree in communicative and science disorders and her master’s degree in speech-language pathology from the University of Northern Iowa. She has experience working with both adults and children who experience a variety of communication, voice and swallowing disorders.
