Jared Jew, M.A., CF-SLP
Speech & Language Pathologist – Clinical Fellow
I am a Bay Area native and I received my masters in Communicative Disorders at San Jose State University (SJSU). At SJSU, I also co-founded the University Buddy Mentor Program, which sought to provide high school teens with ASD with a one-on-one mentor that would provide them with guidance and support to help them achieve their post-high school goals, such as applying to a university, or preparing for a job after high school. My clinical experience includes work in university clinics, public schools, and pediatric outpatient clinics. I also worked as an ABA therapist, and a private aide and an aftercare teacher at Peregrine School in Davis. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, nature photography, and playing with my dog, Haku.

Sydney received a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Psychology from California Baptist University, Riverside and a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University. She began working with children with Autism when she was eighteen as a nanny for her cousin who had been diagnosed with Asperger’s. This experience drove her to find a career that encompassed creativity, the body and the ability to help other children like her cousin. She continued to work with special needs children throughout her time in college. She worked as an aide at a private pediatric clinic in Los Gatos, CA, that provided OT services to children ages two to thirteen, in both clinic and school settings before coming to Wings.

I have been in the Bay Area for the past 12 years and have been working in school-based settings since then. I got my master’s degree in Mumbai, India in Advanced OT in Developmental Disabilities. I have a sensory integration certification from USC. My clinical experience includes work in early intervention home-based setting, pediatric clinic, and public schools. I enjoy my roles of clinical manager for the school-based OT team at the therapy organization I work at, and of a fieldwork educator for OT students, because I love mentoring.

When I’m not working, I enjoy tending to my flower garden patch, playing the piano, taking walks with my son and helping out at church.
