Kelly Dwyer, M.A., CCC-SLP

OWNER, SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST

Kelly Dwyer, M.A., CCC-SLP, is a certified and licensed speech-language pathologist with over 20 years of experience working with children and their families. Kelly serves on the Board of Directors of the Westchester Speech, Hearing and Language Association. She is also a certified instructor of two Hanen programs: It Takes Two To Talk®, for late talkers, and More Than Words®, for children with social communication difficulties or a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

Kelly takes a  fun, play-based approach to therapy, incorporating toys, games, and books that the child owns so parents can easily carry over the strategies modeled during therapy. She dedicates time for coaching, questions, and conversation to empower parents with the tools they need to provide ongoing support at home. 

When Kelly is not supporting the many families she works with, she enjoys cooking, reading, yoga, hiking with her family, and spending time in nature.
