Kaiting Bronson, M.S. CCC-SLP
I grew up observing the struggles of bilingual communication, as well as social isolation due to language barriers. Social situations were difficult for me to navigate, being a child of immigrants living between three countries. On my journey towards adulthood, I was fortunate to have guidance on how to develop confidence. I became a Speech-Language Pathologist because I want to teach differently-abled children and adolescents to learn how to overcome communication difficulties and celebrate their uniqueness.

Evidence-based strategies and data collection are the minimum standard for successful speech therapy. My philosophy is that outstanding speech-language therapy is more than strategies. I incorporate drama therapy and children's yoga in my sessions. I believe that excellent therapies are about using play to empower people to cherish their inner beauty by finding confidence and purpose in using their voice.
"Few speech-language pathologists whom I have worked with achieve the sincerity and depth of caring that I have seen from Kaiting Bronson. Kaiting takes time to get to know each of her clients, and she uses information about their personality, culture, and interests to design customized sessions. Students are engaged to the extent that they feel like they are playing fun games rather than merely participating in therapy.
In the event that students do not make expected progress, I have observed Kaiting think deeply and make tweaks to her sessions until children respond to the intervention. Not only does she want to see students make progress in the session, but she follows up with parents and teachers to make sure that kids improve their speech at home, school, and the community...
I cannot say enough positive things about Kaiting and encourage potential clients to seek opportunities to work with her."

The following components are used to determine present levels of a child's strengths and weaknesses to determine the best plan of care.
Standardized testing compares child's ability to assumed age-appropriate criteria
Clinical testing includes language samples during non-standardized testing such as play activities and narratives
Dynamic assessment evaluates a child's learning style and ability to acquire skills
Personalized sessions are created based on a patient's needs and interests. The goal is to produce experiences most relevant and of high significance to them while keeping a focus on functional speech and language.
Home exercise plans are created in order to ensure carryover of skills gained in therapy sessions to home and community environments.
Strategic planning with members of the community, such as the patient's teacher and school-based Speech Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, and others help ensure patients are being treated with compatible approaches.
