Blue River Valley Speech

Hello! My name is Melissa Rushing, and I am the speech-language pathologist for the Blue River Valley School Corporation. I am beginning my second year at BRV. My family and I moved to Indiana last August from Springfield, MO. I have worked as a speech-language pathologist for 23 years. I’m so proud to be part of the staff here at BRV!

I will be posting information on this page about speech and language issues including typical development, stuttering, social language, voice disorders, language and its relationship to literacy, and other topics related to speech and language. I will also post ideas for activities you can do at home to practice speech and language skills with your child, reviews of apps that are useful in helping to improve your child’s speech and language, and links to websites that you may find informative.

If you have questions about your child’s speech and/or language skills, please call me at Blue River Valley Elementary School or email me at

Thank you!

Melissa Rushing
