We help children communicate through fun therapy while teaching parents strategies to support learning at home.
Speech, Language, & Early Literacy Intervention for Children & Families in Westchester County
K.D. Speech Pathology is a family-centered private speech therapy practice working with families and children in Westchester County, New York. We take a family-centered approach, involving parents in therapy every step of the way. Through fun and engaging activities, we help children reach their communication goals while empowering parents with the skills to support their children in reaching their full communication potential.
We will target specific sounds and accurate pronunciation of core vocabulary to help children improve their speech skills and confidence in their ability to communicate.
Along with direct therapy, parents and caregivers will learn strategies to support speech, language, and early literacy development at home and within daily routines.
Using the Hanen Program “More than Words”, we coach parents on strategies for increasing communication and play and skills by building practice into daily routines.

OWNER, SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST
As a mother of 3 and a speech therapist with over 2 decades of experience, I know parenting is a joy, but also hard work. When your child is having difficulty communicating, it can be frustrating – for everyone – but especially your little one! I value parents and caregivers as their children's most important teachers. This is why I take a collaborative approach, partnering with parents, caregivers, and teachers throughout the therapy process, to help your child communicate more effectively in all environments.
Call me at (914) 393-7939 or fill out the website contact form. I offer free phone consultations to help you decide whether your child will benefit from an evaluation.

School or Daycare
Children often feel most comfortable learning in their natural environment. I offer in-home sessions with a focus on coaching parents to use helpful communication strategies in their daily routines.
Therapy sessions can be conveniently woven into a child’s daycare or school schedule. I am happy to include teachers and daycare providers in the therapy process for the best outcomes.
Online therapy sessions are offered using a HIPAA-compliant version of Zoom. I am dedicated to making speech-language therapy engaging and accessible for all children!
