Julia Clayton


Julia Clayton, M.S.,CCC-SLP, completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater, and received her masters degree from University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, with an Autism Spectrum Disorder Certificate. Julia has experience working in early education, elementary education, and outpatient hospital settings. All areas required continuous communication and collaborative team work. Interdisciplinary work is what brought her to this practice. Her goal is to help the child and their family reach their full potential. Areas of special interest include: Autism Spectrum Disorders, Infant Feeding, expressive and receptive language disorders, myofunctional disorders, and tethered oral tissue (TOT). In the past year she has sought out continuing education opportunities related to feeding, oral motor skills, and TOTs in order to best serve the growing need for families in our community. 

Treatment Philosophy:

I aspire to help my patients achieve their greatest potential at their current level. I believe that through active involvement of family, caregivers, loved ones, and providers we can achieve greatness with every child. I feel that creating open lines of communication, working as a team, and utilizing evidence based practices allows for the greatest progress. I truly enjoy seeing my patients have “light bulb” moments, whether that is an infant taking the pacifier for the first time or a child learning about a new food.  I remain committed to continuing my education and building my skills to help facilitate learning for all of my patients.
