I'm Kim Lewis from the Activity Tailor blog and I've been working as a pediatric speech therapist for over 12 years in out patient and school settings. I'm passionate about communication! I currently work for myself and contract with a local private school and families. My caseload is primarily articulation, language and fluency for ages 3-16 years. I love the variety!
I want to provide an environment where students who struggle have success. Where they have so much fun, they ask to come back for more. Where lessons transfer so seamlessly from the therapy room to the classroom and home, parents and teachers both say, “why didn’t I think of that?”
My blog has been featured on: ASHASphere, PediaStaff, ASHALeader Online, Love That Max, and Special Needs Parenting. In 2011, I was an official ASHA convention blogger. I've written several articles for the ASHA Leader (print). I received an ACE award for continuing education from ASHA in November 2013.
I graduated from Colby College with an B.A. in Economics and from University of Virginia with a M.Ed. in Communication Disorders. I love continuing education and received my Award for Continuing Education (ACE) from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.
I'm mom to two teens that help keep me "cool" (maybe more like cool-ish). I love reading, especially mystery novels, and ballroom dancing with my husband. I have a Norfolk terrier that smiles.
