Sarah Young-Hong is the Clinical Director of Speech-Language Pathology services in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at Northeastern University. Prior to joining Northeastern, Sarah worked as the Clinical Director of a multidisciplinary team of therapists at Easter Seals Massachusetts, in addition to providing direct services to school-age clients, and adults in Day Habilitation programs and skilled nursing facilities. During her time in this role, she created policies and procedures to ensure organization-wide recognition of the supervision and training requirements for Clinical Fellows (CF) in Speech-Language Pathology. CF experiences were enhanced by provision of administrative supports, clinical networking meetings, and continuing education opportunities. Sarah's focus has been on enhancing therapists' abilities to implement patient-centered therapy approaches that consider the patient as an individual to ensure functional outcomes. Sarah began her affiliation with Northeastern as an adjunct faculty member in January of 2007, providing instruction in the area of Speech Science.
