Judith has been a speech/language pathologist since 1993. She has worked predominantly with children ages 3-18 in private and public schools and privately, and has also treated adults in clinics, rehab centers, and privately. For the last several years she has worked as a corporate speech, voice, and communications trainer and specialized in accent modification, at the same time continuing to work with people of all ages and backgrounds to become the best communicators they can be. She has a strong background in reading skills, literacy, writing skills, phonics, accessing the curriculum, and executive functioning. She developed a group program for kids with dyslexia over a course of six years at one school she worked in and also trained teachers in how to facilitate reading skills within the classroom.

brings in as many of the senses as possible, the results go deeper and are more meaningful and longer-lasting.

New York State bilingual (Spanish/ English) licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and certified Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD)
Kristin is a New York State bilingual (Spanish/ English) licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and certified Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD). Kristin completed her Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at Teachers College, Columbia University and holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Kristin has provided speech-language therapy as well as academic intervention in schools and homes both in New York City and internationally. She has supported students in English and Spanish in addition to working with multilingual students from diverse linguistic backgrounds. One area of expertise is evaluating students from multilingual environments to differentiate typical multilingualism from potential speech, language, and learning disorders.
Over her career she Kristin has worked with children with a wide variety of diagnoses including speech and language delay but also dyslexia/dysgraphia, ADHD/ADD, executive functioning deficits, autism spectrum disorder, and various syndromes. Kristin has extensive experience and training in working with students from preschool age through high school with speech, language, and literacy challenges. Her approach to speech-language delays is tailored to the needs and development of the child. For younger students, therapy is based on play and the interests of the child as much as possible. For older students, careful consideration is given to what language needs children to have in their daily functioning whether that be academic or participating in the community. Kristin is also equipped to provide phonics-based reading intervention (Wilson, Orton Gillingham, SPIRE) as well as for other areas of reading difficulties. Reading and writing intervention is also always directly tied to the needs of the child in their academic setting. Whenever possible, she’s in contact with teachers to understand what the child’s challenges look like in the classroom. This might include phonics work, explicit instruction to support reading comprehension, learning the conventions and organization of writing, and more. When children need help with executive functioning, as with reading and writing intervention, Kristin works in tandem with parents and educators to individualize therapy and intervention to fit the specific needs of the child. This might mean helping the child find systems and strategies for organizing work, writing, or time.
Regardless of the need, Kristin’s approach is child and family-centered, seeking to make the child and family partners in the intervention process. She prioritizes functionality and transfer of skills to the child’s everyday life in identifying goals and planning therapy. She is passionate about seeing children achieve their goals and feeling confident and capable.
