Dana Johnson

Originally from Canada, Dana now resides in sunny Tampa, Florida, where she owns Interplay Therapy Center, an occupational therapy practice devoted to supporting families of nonspeaking and unreliably speaking individuals. Dana was first introduced to Spelling to Communicate almost 5 years ago through a mentor and it transformed her practice. Her passion for the nonspeaking community intensified and in 2014 she founded Invictus Academy Tampa Bay, a non-profit private school for students with sensory motor differences. All of the students utilize Spelling to Communicate as their primary method of communication. Dana now makes it her mission to educate others about the neurodiverse community and all aspects of Spelling to Communicate. “Having the opportunity to work with families to support reliable communication is my dream job!”
