Megan Gambino, MS, CCC-SLP is an ASHA Certified Speech-Language Pathologist. She has a passion for parent education and training and believes this is is key to any treatment plan. Her areas of specialized interest include early language development in the birth to three population, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, speech sound disorders, and cleft palate.
Megan received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics from the University of California, Riverside. She then went on to obtain her Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education from Utah State University. In 2014, she graduated from California State University, Northridge with her Master of Science degree in Communicative Disorders. While completing her clinical fellowship at an outpatient rehab clinic, she discovered her love for all things pediatric, especially speech production delays/disorders, including dysarthria, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, cleft palate speech, and severe phonological disorders. It was at this placement that she also realized the crucial link between parent education and training and a child’s ultimate success in therapy.
Megan and her husband, Nick, decided to open Riverside Children’s Speech Services, Inc. in May 2018 as a way for Megan to pursue her clinical passions while meeting the needs of their family. Megan and Nick are both native to Riverside, with deep roots and ties to the community. Their off-work days are filled with playful exploration with their two young daughters and their dog, an Australian Shepherd named Jasmine. As a family, they enjoy camping as often as they can and discovering new places to play and learn within the community.
