I am a certified speech-language pathologist with over 30 years of experience in both the school environment and private practice setting. During my career, I have worked with children at all age levels and have collaborated with the child’s family, teachers, doctors, and other related service providers to provided a well-rounded program of care to best meet the child’s needs.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Audiology and Speech Sciences from Purdue University in 1979 and my Master of Science in Education degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from SUNY College at Fredonia in 1981. I also completed the certification program in School Administration and Supervision at Loyola College in Maryland. After completing my Masters Degree, I worked for 27 years in the public school systems in New York, Maryland, and South Carolina, followed by experience in private practice since leaving the schools in 2009. My most recent experience has involved developing and leading social language groups to meet the pragmatic language needs of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Finally, My experience also includes delivering presentations at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Annual Convention in 2010 and the South Carolina Speech and Hearing Association Annual Conventions in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

I have experience in working with a wide variety of age groups and populations of people who live with speech-language delay feeding skill development and motor planning skills so that speech can actually be produced. I am PROMPT trained, a question that i am frequently asked. Most recently, I have been working with children in their homes and provide early intervention services. I enjoy working with parents as a coach so that they can increase their skill base and help their children at home. What i find particularly rewarding is the fact that i can actually assist children and families in realizing true functional gains so that communication and mealtime can be more enjoyable. I have a great deal of experience in working with children on the autism spectrum. Parents especially have expressed appreciation for the fact that they have been given greater knowledge and empowerment to facilitate growth in their children as well as in themselves as their child's first "teacher". I also have been helping older children, privately, who are in need of assistance, preparing for testing that requires a fund of language based skills such as reading comprehension and the ability to write compositions.
I am married and have an 18 year old son who is a freshman studying Computer Science at UNC Charlotte I have a BA in Psychology from UNC Charlotte and a MS in Speech-Language Pathology from Winthrop University.

Matteo is located in Australia (Melbourne) and has a solid background in translating from English, French, Chinese, Spanish into Italian.
Born in 1979, Italy, he combined his passions for Languages and Music.
His ‘out-of-the-paradigm’ approach to life enriched his vision and enlarged his horizon, allowing a better knowledge of how important is a good knowledge of different languages, cultures and people.
He always took his destiny into his own hands and established himself in Italy, UK, Austria, Mali, Switzerland, Russia, India and USA.
I am children's speech and language therapist and children's author. I have worked as a therapist for 8 years now in a variety of settings, and I'm now mainly based in schools, specialising in language and literacy development, alongside the school curriculum. My approach is holistic and child-centered. No child is the same, therefore each child needs to be taught creatively in a style that suits them.
Working with children, gave me the inspiration to start writing children's books for all children in their first years at school, and therefore give them positive role-models and also the motivation for their every day learning. I have published two books so far: Benjamin Writer-Messy, a story about a boy who has terrible handwriting and Jake Monkey-Tail, a story about a colourful monkey who cannot spell.
I look forward to writing more books, and further developing creative approaches to my speech and language therapy work in the coming years.
I am a new speech-language therapist with a special love for creatively bringing technology into therapy. I am also the principal blogger and founder of SpeechieApps.com, which reviews Apple and Android apps for speech-language therapists. In addition, I recently became Director of Website Content Development at Yapp Guru, a new company dedicated to creating an aggregate community of app experts to make it easier for people to find apps for language, learning, and living. You can find me heavily involved in various social media, particularly on Twitter @atklingensmith.
