How can I help your child succeed?

My experience as a Speech-Language Pathologist began at Helping Hand Center, a therapeutic day school on the southwest side of Chicago. At Helping Hand, I worked with students from age 3-22 with a primary diagnosis of autism. I provided services in the areas of expressive and receptive language, social/pragmatics, apraxia of speech, articulation, auditory processing disorders, fluency, and AAC. Thereafter, I transitioned to Easterseals Academy in Chicago in which I work with kids with the following disabilities: cerebral palsy, autism, EBD, intellectual disability, ADHD, ODD, and others. I aim to help each student communicate in whichever mode is functional (i.e., low and/or high tech AAC, Picture Exchange System, communication boards, verbal speech, etc.). I strive to make learning fun and interactive for all my clients while simultaneously targeting their goals.

What are parents saying?

Carolyn was amazing from day one. She was kind and patient. She made my daughter feel comfortable, listened to her, and respected her. She came with level-appropriate activities that my daughter enjoyed very much. She knew just the way to challenge her to improve as well. My daughters speech improved dramatically after just a couple weeks with Carolyn. Carolyn was also great at explaining to me what she was doing, how my daughter was progressing, and allowed me to be very involved in the process which put me as ease. Having in-home therapy is a game changer and just what our family needed. Our daughter couldn’t wait to see Carolyn again and jumped for joy every time she came over. Highly recommend her!
