The small steps in life

“It’s the small steps that we take everyday that matter.  These are the steps that take you where you are supposed to be.”

Kim Marino


In my life….both at home and at work…I know that the small steps are the ones that matter.  The small  steps are the ones that you have thought about more….worked on…and committed yourself to.  They are not rushed… not thoughtless…and not without committment. 

It is hard sometimes though….because to get where you think you want to be….it may seem easier….if you take the bigger and more rushed steps.   However, for me…my family…my home…and the little ones that I work with…it is truly the small steps that get us where we really are supposed to be. 

It makes me so happy to help the families out there that I help…and there are certain families that pull on my heart-strings more…and these are the families…that together we walk the path….taking small steps….and getting their little one to where she is supposed to be.





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 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
