Suleika Pryce, MS, CCC-SLP

Author and Founder of Tattles of a Speech Language Pathologist

Suleika Pryce

Suleika Pryce is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist based in Brooklyn, New York. She is a proud alumna of Temple University and received her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Adelphi University. Suleika has provided intervention for a wide range of populations. Her most advanced practice has been in geriatrics and adult neurological disorders. She primarily treated dysphagia and acquired speech and language disorders in the skilled nursing facility. Most recently, she has transitioned into early intervention and adult in-patient behavioral health.

Tattletales of a Speech-Language Pathologist, the book, is Suleika’s inaugural work into authorship and represents one of her greatest accomplishments. Suleika is also a poetry and fiction writer, and she enjoys teaching literacy and creative expression to school-aged children. She also has an affinity for adults with developmental disabilities and residual effects of traumatic brain injury.

Suleika has founded the organization Tattletales of a Speech-Language Pathologist, which is a community-based initiative to improve partnership and networking of rehabilitative health service providers, especially speech-language pathologists. She coined “good gossip” to reframe people’s ideas of virtue in and need to talk about their experiences in the health field in order to improve them.
