Patti Tillman, Speech-Language Pathologist

My name is Patti Tillman and I have lived in Thomson for the past 25 years with my husband and our fur babies/Doberman Pinschers.  I am a state-licensed and ASHA certified Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) with 27 years of experience. This is my fifteenth year working in the McDuffie County Schools. I currently serve 4th and 5th grades at R. L. Norris Elementary and 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at TMMS.  I have a strong interest in Autism Spectrum and Assistive Technology and find joy in giving students the individualized support they need to succeed in the classroom and in life.


Please access the links on my resources page to help your child at home.  There are multiple websites which can be utilized to assist your child in the areas of articulation (speech sounds), language, and fluency (stuttering).  These should be used to help your child maintain and practice speech skills worked on at school.


Since I work at several locations, the best method to contact me is by email at  Please contact me Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM by email, cell phone (706) 901-7054, or through your child's school if you need further assistance.  I look forward to working with you and your child!
