Kelcie Courtney, DT
Hi – my name is Kelcie Courtney and I am a Developmental Therapist with PSA! I have been with PSA since I graduated from Ball State University in 2014 with a degree in Family Consumer Sciences with a concentration in Child Development. While working with First Steps, I have worked with kiddos with delayed milestones (speech, cognitive delays, attention, play and social skills) and behavioral disorders; as well as kiddos with medical diagnosis like TBI, Autism, Down Syndrome, Seizure Disorders, and more. I am also a Supervisor for first year Developmental Therapists!
I have a fur baby named Kovu and we love to do anything outside – especially backpacking on the Colorado Trail. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, boating, camping, and traveling!
Sharon Phelps, DT
I received my Masters of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from Ball State University in 2008. I began providing early intervention services through Pediatric Specialty Associates, Inc. in the First Steps system in June 2014. I have experience working with children who have developmental delays, speech and language delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, childhood apraxia of speech, and oral motor/feeding/swallow difficulties. As a mother to four children, I have experienced the ups and downs of parenting, and I believe that parents and caregivers play an integral role in speech and language development. I incorporate basic sign language, parent coaching, picture communication, sensory integration, and other communication modalities to find a system of communication that works best for each child. I look forward to working with you and your family!
Arbara Rogers, DT
For the past 10 years, I’ve worked as a mental health therapist working with toddler, preschool, middle school and high school aged children, as well as young adults. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Indiana University in 2008, my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Indianapolis in 2011, my Post-graduate Certificate in Play Therapy from Capella University in 2017. I am a Registered Play Therapist and I am a current Doctoral student at Fielding University, where I’m studying Infant and Early Childhood Development. I’ve been working with children ever since I was old enough to do so. I love watching children grow and develop, and they always put a smile on my face.
