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

      Dear Caroline,
      Please accept my apologies. I have edited the post..which now reads only to go to your link in reference to speech intelligibility. Although I have been working for now 21 years as an SLP…this is only my second year of blogging…and gosh did not mean to violate any copyrights. Thank you for contacting me so that I was able to correct my error. Thank you, Kim

    What can we do to help our childen who have Down Syndrome improve their speech clarity .Here in the uk my daughter’s programme is delivered by a teaching assistant , she only sees the SaLT once a term , but I am concerned that although she has a good vocab. ,her clarity is holding her back.
