About Kacy Wickerson MA, CCC-SLP

Kacy Wickerson (of “KlassicKacy” on YouTube) is an ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologist and owner of Teach Speech LLC. During the second semester of her first year in grad school, she decided to pick up a camera and start telling her story. She created her YouTube channel “KlassicKacy” with hopes of connecting with her SLP community and inspiring SLPToBe’s to keep pushing through their journey.

Through her practice Teach Speech, she’s helped hundreds of parents understand communication development, why it’s important, and how they can take an active role in improving communication under their own roof. She does this through Teach Speech courses, and her signature intimate coaching programs that offer guided support for parents to strengthen the child’s speech and language skills right in the comfort of their own home.

When she’s not educating parents and inspiring SLPs, you can find her watching YouTube videos, playing with her Goldendoodle Kash, or catching up on audiobooks.
