KATHRYNcopyHEADER

Over the past Twenty Five-plus years, I have provided individual and group services for both adults and children who were experiencing difficulties with communication skills. I have worked in public schools, universities, hospitals, clinics and private practice. The larger portion of my experience has been in public schools (K-12), working with students who demonstrate difficulties with speech sound production and intelligibility, brain damage, orofacial velopharyngeal inadequacy, fluency, voice, Velocardiofacial Syndrome, and the understanding and use of language related to the Common Core State Standards. As well, Riverdeep Company employed me to judge the audio accuracy of reading software in 2000 to 2001.

Since 2005, I have participated in 50-plus workshop days related to the following areas: phonological and apraxia of speech disorders, functional speech disorders, autism spectrum disorders, English as a Second Language, neurological disorders and learning disabilities, visual strategies for learning, stuttering and cluttering, pragmatics and social cognition, literacy skills, executive skills in children and adults, behavior strategies for children in the autism spectrum, assessment of accented speech, narrative development and story grammar, social and academic language, teaching vocabulary, brain injury and vocal abuse. I received the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Award for Continuing Education in 2006, 2009, 2012, and will receive the same for 2015.
