Jordan Horner, MS, CCC-SLP | Speech-Language Pathologist
Jordan Horner is passionate about providing individualized care to patients of all ages. Native to Oregon, she received her undergraduate degree at Portland State University and went on to receive her master’s degree at Pacific University. She gained extensive knowledge and experience at the Rehabilitation Institute of Oregon, where she worked with patients with acquired neurological conditions like stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury.
Jordan loves to have fun with her pediatric clients and their families as they navigate challenges with feeding and swallowing. She received specialized training from the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy, expanding her scope of practice to include assessment and interventions for tethered oral tissue (tongue tie), tongue thrust, sleep disorders, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies.
“My job looks different working with every patient,” she says. “From peek-a-boo imitation skills with an early communicator to strategizing a fantasy football line-up with a patient who is working on executive functioning, I get to do it all!”
Along with specializing in feeding and swallowing disorders, Jordan provides screening, assessment and intervention in early language development, motor speech disorders, articulation, auditory processing, voice, social skills, language and literacy delays and disorders, and cognition.
“Life with or without a neurological condition is full of opportunities for learning and growth. Humans are capable of truly amazing things, and I love celebrating those triumphs with my patients. Whether we’re celebrating mastering the “r” sound, baby’s weight gain, or singing karaoke after five years with Parkinson’s, I feel so honored to be a part of their story.”
Jordan grew up in the Willamette Valley and is proud to be an Oregonian. Whether it’s hiking or camping, she takes advantage of every opportunity to get outside with her dog and enjoy the perks of the Pacific Northwest. When she’s not spending time with family and friends, Jordan likes to practice yoga, make jewelry and read.
