I am a Russian/English bilingual speech/language
pathologist, with both New York and New Jersey State licenses.
I was born in Moscow, Russia, and relocated
to the United States as a teenager. I received my Bachelors
degree, with Honors in Psychology, from New York University
and my Masters Degree in Speech/Language Pathology from
Teachers College, Columbia University.
In addition to my New York and New Jersey
State licenses, I hold a Bilingual Certification from Marymount
Manhattan College, a Certificate of Clinical Competence
from ASHA (American Speech and Hearing Association) and
New York State Approval for monolingual and bilingual speech
evaluations & services.
I won a National Award in Foreign Languages
(1992) and authored an article review published in the newsletter
for ASHA Special Division 13 (March 2001). Throughout the
years, I have attended a variety of continuing education
courses to refine my clinical skills in assessment and treatment
of children with speech/language disorders.
As a bilingual speech/language evaluator and
therapist, I have worked extensively and successfully with
monolingual and bilingual children, from birth to 18, who
were diagnosed with a variety of neurological/psychological
conditions and learning disabilities. I have worked in a
variety of settings, including schools, hospitals, clients'
homes and private offices.
I am a mother of three Russian/English bilingual
children and live in Springfield, New Jersey.
