Megan chamberlain doup

M.A. CCC-slp, M.A.T. Spanish

Megan is the owner and speech-language pathologist of Communication for All: Speech and Language Services. She believes that effective communication skills are necessary for people of all ages and language backgrounds. Years ago, Megan worked as a chemist in research and development, where she developed analytical skills with attention to detail, but seeking a service-oriented profession with the opportunity to build relationships, she returned to school at Indiana University to embark on a career in speech-language pathology. Megan is currently licensed as a speech-language pathologist in Indiana and has a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). She has primarily practiced in clinical outpatient and medial inpatient settings, working with the Early Intervention (ages birth to 3) population, school-aged children, and adults.

In the course of her studies and work, Megan developed a love for the Spanish language and the field of bilingualism/dual-language learning, and she obtained a Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish from IUPUI in 2018. While simultaneously learning/teaching a second language and working as a speech-language pathologist, she discovered accent modification. Accent modification is an elective service aimed at improving second-language learners’ English pronunciation – for example, working with native Spanish speakers to speak English more clearly – which can improve their overall communication skills. Whether clients are dealing with a language-learning difference due to bilingualism or a speech/language disorder, Megan views the ability to communicate effectively as a fundamental necessity, and she is passionate about helping clients of all ages to find success in communication. 

Educational Background

Megan graduated summa cum laude from Ball State University in 2008 with the President’s Citation for Academic Excellence and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry and Spanish. Megan subsequently obtained a Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from Indiana University in 2015, followed by a Master of Arts in Teaching Spanish from IUPUI in 2018. She has completed graduate coursework in Second Language Acquisition and Bilingualism in Children, Spanish Language Acquisition and Disorders, and Acquisition of Spanish as a 2nd Language, and she participated in undergraduate- and graduate-level study abroad programs in Salamanca (Spain), Segovia (Spain), and Rosario (Argentina), which deepened her appreciation of cultural diversity and cross-cultural communication.
