Madi Metcalf


Speech Pathologist

I was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas and have a profound love for my community. I moved around a lot growing up, but it also gave me the opportunity to live in Bentonville, Springdale, Huntsville, and Fayetteville, which led me to experience so much of what NWA has to offer. I attended the University of Central Arkansas for my bachelor’s in communication sciences and disorders and returned to Fayetteville to complete my master’s in communication sciences and disorders at the University of Arkansas. I now live in Bella Vista with my husband, our two dogs, and cat.

I have completed a 28 hour introductory training for orofacial myofunctional disorders and have received 2 Awards of Continuing Education from the American Speech Language Hearing Association for obtaining 70 hours of continuing education. I have focused my independent studies around pediatric feeding disorders and swallowing disorders across the lifespan. I am also actively pursing my Board Certification in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders.

The core values that drive me in life are dependability, honesty, and determination.

“Progress is progress no matter how small”

I am a speech pathologist for Therapists in Motion and specialize in pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders. I love working with patients with feeding and swallowing disorders to help them find enjoyment, or in some cases, neutrality, with eating. Eating is such an integral part of our day and social interactions, and I love to help my patients improve that part of their lives.

I enjoy treating Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders. Pediatric pharyngeal dysphagia and adult oral and pharyngeal dysphagia

I love that Therapists in Motion prioritizes optimal patient care and can treat patients in the home to maximize functional outcomes of treatment.
