Kayla has a tremendous amount of patience working with students who have learning disabilities. She is a genuine people person, which is a plus in our line of work. She cares for others and that shows in how she handles working as part of a team.

"Contracting with Kayla was a great experience. She was able to quickly develop strong bonds with both staff and students and delivered high quality services immediately upon joining the related service provider team. She was able to individualize assessments and services and crafted very strong goals for non-verbal students with autism, which is not an easy task. I found her professional, compassionate and driven to succeed."  

- Ethan Robinson, Director of Operations, Greater Opportunities



“Kayla collaborates well with professionals and parents; she listens to their needs and suggestions. She thinks outside the box when confronted with a complex communication problem; always working with all ages of student's strengths and interests. She designs plans that address the whole student in different places like at home, in school, and in the community. Kayla truly is a gifted speech pathologist who is both professional and sensitive to the needs of the people she works with.”  

- Kathy Kalm, Special Education Teacher



“I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Kayla at a non-public school, where she served the behaviorally challenging students in my classroom and throughout the school on a weekly/biweekly basis.  I found that Kayla was very prompt and thorough in communicating with me about speech challenges my students faced and sharing ways that I could support them in the classroom. Kayla readily understood what was necessary when I gave feedback regarding what students needed in the classroom to be successful communicators.  Additionally, out of the variety of SLPs I’ve seen as a SpEd teacher, I was impressed with Kayla’s ability to create a positive bond with students while creating firm boundaries regarding appropriate behavior in session. I feel that this was truly an impressive quality and was pleased that several of my students were able to benefit from Ms. Kayla’s sessions.”

Kayla worked so well with my daughter Tessa. She went above and beyond to make sure my daughter could reach her goals. I would highly recommend her.
