Kati also worked for the Communication Station in New Jersey, serving as Staff Speech Pathologist and Supervisor of Feeding Services. In addition, she served both children and adolescents as the facilitator for social skills development groups run through Interactive Kids. Her areas of expertise include evaluating and treating children with articulation disorders, expressive/receptive language disorders, auditory processing disorders, apraxia of speech, phonological disorders, voice disorders, fluency disorders or “stuttering,” and pragmatic/social skill delays.

Kati has presented nationally on topics in speech pathology, including technology and telecommunications in speech pathology, feeding therapy, HIPAA and health services, and social skills and language, and has published research on those topics. She has trained under supervisors and professors from Johns Hopkins, A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children, and other prominent institutions. Believing strongly in continuing education and “cutting edge” therapy techniques, Kati has received training in Physical Restructuring of Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets (PROMPT), Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), and the Sequential-Oral-Sensory (SOS) program for feeding. Also active in the community, Kati is on the Board of Directors of the Next Generation Committee, Southern Delaware, of the Delaware Community Foundation.

Kati was raised in Delaware, and is honored to achieve her lifelong dream of operating a speech-language clinic in her hometown. She is a proud mother to her son, Ryan and daughter, Ava. Her philosophy in therapy is, “Every child has limitless potential. An excellent therapist is one who provides the foundation, the tools, and the encouragement for each child to achieve his or her personal best.”
