Aimee R. Mooney, M.S., CCC-SLP

  • Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, School of Medicine


Aimee is an ASHA-certified licensed Speech and Language Pathologist with over 27 years of clinical experience specializing in Communication and Cognitive Rehabilitation. Her clinical expertise is in working with people with neurological illness/injury. Aimee endeavors to assist adults with maximize recovery from injury or adaptation  to disease or degenerative illness.    Aimee joined OHSU in 1999 with the NIDRR sponsored Oregon Traumatic Brain injury Model Systems (OTBIMS) Project.  Her research focus is helping people find and use compensatory supports for cognition and communication. She currently leads projects aimed at development of effective intervention models for adults with Primary Progressive Aphasia.  Aimee is an enthusiastic instructor, speaking frequently at local and national conferences. When not conducting research, she enjoys mentoring graduate students in her role as clinical faculty in the department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at Portland State University.

Aimee feels fortunate to be able to integrate knowledge from clinical practice, research and mentorship towards the development of evidence-based practices.
