Therapy

KCSS proudly provides teletherapy at this time. We encourage everyone to continue to stay safe, wear masks, and help to flatten the curve.

I love to work with children who have the following diagnoses or needs:

  • Articulation/Phonological Disorder
  • Childhood Apraxia of Speech
  • Expressive and Receptive Language Disorder 
  • Developmental Language Disorder
  • Social/Pragmatic Language
  • Developmental Delays
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices (AAC Devices)

My approach may not work for your family if...

  •  You want your child to practice using flashcards. I personally find flashcards very boring, so I try to avoid them at all costs. There are some instances where I use flashcards for quick check-ins, but the majority of my therapy is literacy or play focused.
 
  • You do not want to be involved in your child’s therapy. I’ve found that parent involvement often leads to increased carryover and shorter time in therapy.
 
  • You want your child to work on five goals at once. Similar to my feelings about flashcards, I find working on too many goals to be overwhelming, so I don’t do it! I try to keep to one or two goals that we discuss at regularly scheduled progress check-ins.

My approach definitely is for you if...

  • You want to learn how to help your child communicate more clearly in their day-to-day life. One of the reasons why I love in-home therapy (both in person and remote) is the opportunity to work within your child’s “natural environment.”
 
  • You understand that play is the “occupation” of childhood. So much learning happens during play, so I love to be playful and engaging during my therapy sessions. 
 
  • You like to know the numbers. I’m a very data-driven therapist, so whenever possible I chart progress on a fancy-looking graph.
 
  • You want to be involved in your child’s therapy. It is my preference for parents to be involved in every step of this journey.

My Guarantee

I will return double your  therapy session fee if you feel that I did not listen to your family’s individual needs, explain clinical information to you in a clear way, or give you family-friendly carryover activities to help your child to solidify their skills between sessions.
