Birdsong Speech Therapy Associates was founded in 2015 by Alycia Canavan and her business partner, Katie. At Birdsong, we are passionately committed to helping people improve their communication skills. We provide experienced, compassionate speech and language therapy to both children and adults in the Eugene area. We are also able to collaborate and consult with families and school-based teams to improve treatment outcomes across settings.
Alycia received her B.A. in Applied Linguistics from Portland State University, and her M.A. in Communication Disorders and Sciences at the University of Oregon. She is licensed by the Oregon Board of Examiners in Speech-Language Pathology and by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). She has practiced as a speech language pathologist in public schools and as a clinical supervisor in a university setting. Her areas of interest include Autism Spectrum Disorder, articulation and phonological disorders, early language development, and Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Alycia is trained in the PROMPT technique, Hanen's It Takes Two to Talk program, and the SCERTS model. She delights in helping children make social connections, produce sounds, and put words together for the first time! Alycia lives in South Eugene and enjoys reading, traveling, gardening, cooking, and spending time with her husband and their two children.

Joanna received her B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of the Pacific in California. She earned her M.S. in Communication Disorders and Sciences and served as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the University of Oregon. She is licensed by the Oregon Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and holds her ASHA CCCs. Joanna has a variety of experiences working with children with complex communication and feeding/swallowing needs in hospital and public school settings. However, her greatest inspiration stems from her childhood when she would help her younger brother with his speech therapy exercises. These experiences have fueled her passion for working with children and encouraging their communicative success. When Joanna is not helping children learn how to say their speech sounds, retell stories, or demonstrate flexible social thinking, you can find her singing, trying the latest food trends, and exploring the beautiful state of Oregon.
