Mrs. Amy Thomas is faculty and Clinical Supervisor at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) Scott F. McLaughlin Speech and Hearing Clinic.  She currently instructs Aphasia II, Legal Aspects in Speech-Language Pathology, Dysphagia, and Cleft Palate at UCO.

Mrs. Thomas completed her undergraduate degree with a minor in communication at UCO in May 1994.  She went on to complete her Masters of Education, Speech-Language Pathology at UCO in 1996.  While completing her graduate degree, she served as a Graduate Assistant in the Oklahoma School for the Deaf Edmond Regional Preschool.  She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.  She is also licensed by the Board of Examiners in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.

Upon graduation, Mrs. Thomas began her career in an inpatient rehab setting working with adults that had sustained a brain injury.  While at that hospital, she went on to assist with computerization of all therapy documentation working on a collaborative team consisting of co-workers throughout the hospital.  Mrs. Thomas has worked in an outpatient clinic working with pediatrics and adults.  While at there, she was given a Mercy Pillar award for excellence.  After leaving that hospital setting, she worked at a pediatric clinic with a variety of diagnoses including apraxia, auditory processing, autism, feeding difficulties, and language disorders, to name a few.  Mrs. Thomas has also worked in a public school setting and a private school setting. 

“The most rewarding aspect of being a speech-language pathologist is the relationships that are built.  Throughout my career, I have been grateful for all I have learned from the clients and families I have been blessed to encounter.  Speech Pathology offers a variety of settings, ages, and diagnoses to evaluate and treat.  Being a part of the faculty at UCO has been a privilege.  Working with our future SLP’s is an honor!”
