If you have come back to my blog for a second or third time….or more…you will see that the main page has changed….this is my first time blogging….so it really is a work in progress.  I just realized that I was setting it up more as a website….not allowing myself to write a post on my blog as I felt needed…..so I moved things around a little bit….and I still have so much to do and share……please feel free to send me any questions at all regarding speech and language development.  I will be working through all of the sounds in English….and how to teach you to help your little one communicate clearer…..I will also have information on feeding…sensory issues when eating, receptive language, auditory processing and much more…I look forward to helping you help your little one…


About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim

    You truly are an amazing mom, therapist, friend, and now blogger!! My son said a lot of his “firsts” with you. I will never forget when he said, “mom, dad, and me” for the first time when we were doing his session together. And now, because of you, he is with a great team to help him further. This website is awesome.

    I look forward to reading your blog. Not only do I look to you for advise for when I have questions about my children’s language development but you often provide me with encouragement with any obstacle that I face, big or small. You just always give the best advise and are so understanding.
