About Kate


 
I am a certified and licensed speech and language pathologist (SLP) and board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) who serves children and adults with developmental disabilities. I specialize in augmentative alternative communication (AAC), autism and related neurological disorders, speech and language disorders, and individuals with complex communication and behavioral needs.  
 
After graduating from Connecticut College with my bachelor's degree in Psychology and Human Development, I became interested in the field of speech and language pathology through working in autism research at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. After earning my masters degree in Communication Disorders from Emerson College in Boston, I gained clinical experience in a var
iety of settings. My most notable experiences include working at OTA Watertown, a clinic specializing in sensory integration disorders, and LADDERS / The Lurie Center / Spaulding Outpatient
Center for Children in Lexington, an outpatient hospital setting that specializes in autism and other related disorders, pediatric speech and language disorders, and augmentative alternative communication. In addition to private practice, I teach speech and language development at Northeastern University, serve on the board of advisors for Hacking Autism (an initiative of Autism Speaks), and am the President and Co-Founder of The Speech and Language Network.
