KD Speech Pathology, PC is a pediatric speech-language pathology practice located in Westchester County, NY. Kelly Dwyer is the owner and speech-language pathologist (SLP), with over 24 years of experience working with children ages 12 months – 10 years. Kelly offers free phone consultations that will help a parent determine if their child requires an in-depth speech-language assessment. The comprehensive evaluations assess a child’s speech skills, oral motor and motor speech skills, receptive and expressive language, and play/social skills. Therapeutic goals are then tailored to the child’s individual needs. Kelly uses evidenced based assessment and therapeutic techniques taken directly from the research in the field of speech-language pathology. Therapy sessions vary between 30 and 45 minutes in length and are conveniently scheduled at the student’s home, school, or day care. Teletherapy (‘online’ speech therapy) is also available! Kelly works closely with parents and caregivers to teach strategies that will promote generalization of skills so your child can make better progress! She values parent participation because you know your child best!
Kelly has extensive post graduate training in the assessment and treatment of childhood speech, language, literacy, and social communication impairments. She earned the Award for Continuing Education (ACE) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The ACE is a formal recognition of professionals who have earned at least 70 continuing education hours in a 3 year period. Kelly’s passion for learning is driven by a desire to help her students communicate using evidenced based techniques.
