Kailyn works with clients presenting with developmental delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Childhood Apraxia of Speech. She has also worked with children who have cochlear implants, as well as those who use Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC). Her experience includes working with children with speech-sound (clarity) disorders and children with feeding and oral-motor needs.

Providing early intervention and working with preschool and young school-age populations is a passion of hers. She strongly supports play-based, or child driven approaches during therapy, and believes in the importance of incorporating literacy into speech and language sessions.
Everyone deserves a voice, and Kailyn established Play with Words to support children who need help finding theirs.
