About Austin’s Communication Station

Our History

Following her passion as a Speech Language Pathologist, Amy K. Bartelt, MS, CCC-SLP, BCBA established Austin’s Communication Station in 2009.

With over 13 years of experience, Amy has grown Austin’s Communication Station to be an incredible place to help children and their families.  Amy’s passion is to lead a pediatric clinic where children and families are valued as unique people and treatment plans are developed to help them with their individualized needs.   Austin’s Communication Station encourages caregivers to be a part of their child’s treatment and collaborate with therapists to create therapeutic opportunities for their children outside of the therapy sessions.  

Innovative Holistic Therapy
