Alexis Little
SLP - Bossier City

Alexis joined the PTP family in 2021 at the Bossier Clinic. Alexis has a passion for pediatric speech-language pathology because she gets to be a small part of helping little ones who were once shy, frustrated, and often struggled to communicate grow into confident and independent communicators. She loves working closely with families to nurture children’s speech and language development to help each child find their voice so that they may express themselves with confidence and gain the skills to build meaningful relationships with those around them.

Allison Mourad
SLP - Bossier City

Allison started working at the Bossier clinic in November of 2021. From the time that I learned about speech therapy at age 16, it has been my goal and passion to provide each and every child with a way to communicate, in whatever way is possible for them. Seeing a child or parent’s face light up when they finally master a skill, or are finally able to express their wants/desires is absolutely priceless. Working with children and their families has brought so much joy into my life and I hope to be able to provide that for them as well.

Kelsey came to our Shreveport location in April of 2021. She enjoys forming relationships with her clients and their families.

Kelsey enjoys working closely with the OT department to help her clients improve in a variety of ways and to even learn more herself. Kelsey believes speech therapy is an adventure and has a desire to help kids reach their speech, language, and communication goals.

Emily loves working with kids and has a passion for helping children reach their full potential with gross motor skills, from crawling to running and beyond! For Emily, the best part of working in pediatrics is the challenge of combining a child’s interests, play, exercise, motivation, and the family’s goals all together while working as a team with OT and Speech to help the child reach big goals! It’s such a fun puzzle to piece together and makes those milestones so sweet and special! “Walking through each child’s journey alongside their families is such a privilege and I am humbled everyday that you entrust your child’s care to me!” Emily is working towards becoming an MNRI Core Specialist in Training to bring exceptional reflex integration therapy to the Shreveport/Bossier area!
