Spaulding Family

Morgan Bailey

Creatively Communicating to Improve Lives

The career plan to become a teacher was forever altered the day Morgan Bailey, MS, CCC-SLP, observed a speech language pathologist (SLP) help a dying stroke patient say, “I love you” to his family. “That’s when I immediately decided I wanted to help people find their voice,” Morgan explains.

Spaulding in Action

Quality Services, Individualized Care

Throughout its 150-year history of ensuring every child has a childhood, Spaulding Academy & Family Services has provided a compassionate home to children of diverse needs. The organization’s current and former Residential staff members reflect on how the focus shifted over the decades from an orphanage to a behavior analysis approach – to the current model of building relationships with the Residential children as they live and learn in an academically-rich and less restrictive environment. Nationally recognized for its quality of care and flexible ability to help children achieve their goals, Spaulding and its “one-campus” culture offer children and families a uniquely supportive community.
