Hi there :) I’m Kasha (she/they), and I have been working as a pediatric speech-language pathologist in outpatient and early intervention (home and community based) settings since 2009. I enjoy working with clients and families with complex communication needs and sensory processing differences. I work with families to address functional communication goals from a strengths-based perspective.

I strongly believe in presuming competence and helping clients communicate and advocate for themselves more independently. I have experience with trialing and procuring Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices to support communication access. Another professional interest is supporting Gestalt Language Processors; Gestalt Language Processors learn to speak in chunks or phrases, using echolalia (repetition of phrases or units of meaning) prior to learning to break up those chunks into single words that may be combined into more traditional grammar.

Authentic Communication is a Human Right. Join us!
Bio
Kasha lives in Chesapeake with her lovely husband, delightful child and bonus kids, and cute as a button cat, who is named after a Beatles song. When she's not online finding novel greenscreen backgrounds for her teletherapy sessions, or playing Pokemon Go!, you can find her volunteering with PFLAG Norfolk/South Hampton Roads and He, She Ze and We.
