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 maintain a high number of trials in my therapy sessions while keeping it fun! My strength is creativity. I can approach the same goal from lots of different angles. I keep many of my products simple in design to keep down printing costs and minimize visual distractions for LD kiddos. While I love a fancy font, my materials that are designed for new/early readers have a clear typeface.
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! I'm PROMPT trained and have taken a number of Lindamood classes as well as a bunch on sensory issues.
I'm mom to two teens that help keep me "cool" (maybe more like "cooler"). I love reading, especially mystery novels, and ballroom dancing with my husband. Follow my blog at: www.ActivityTailor.com for lots of free ideas!
