I am a bilingual Russian speech/language pathologist with a specialty in pediatric speech and language disorders. I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, hospital/rehabilitation centers, as well as early intervention/home care. Currently, I maintain my own private practice in Central New Jersey, where one of my specialties is providing speech and language services to internationally adopted children from Eastern Europe.

I've interned at the prestigious Rose F Kennedy Center (affiliated with Albert Einstein School of Medicine) and the RUSK Rehabilitation Institute (affiliated with the New York University Langone Medical Center) in New York working with children 0-21 years of age with a vast variety of communication disorders, developmental speech/language delays and language-based learning disabilities.

I've completed my clinical fellowship working with medically fragile pediatric and young adult population 0-22 years of age with severe multiple disabilities: mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autistic spectrum disorders, emotional disturbances, rare genetic syndromes, severe visual/hearing impairments as well as feeding and swallowing difficulties. During that time I became a member of multi-disciplinary team specializing in augmentative assistive technology (AAC), picture exchange communication (PECS) and adaptive technology, and spent extensive periods of time educating teachers, parents and supporting staff on how to reinforce speech, language & feeding/swallowing skills in severely compromised pediatric populations.

I provided speech and language therapy services at the Children's Specialized Hospital of New Brunswick to children 0-21 years of age with a variety of neurogenic, developmental, and acquired disorders including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, as well as feeding and swallowing deficits.

Additionally I've conducted 0-3 early intervention assessments for the Arc of Somerset, an organization dedicated to providing services to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities including genetic syndromes, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and autism spectrum disorders.

Presently, in addition to my private practice, I am affiliated with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where I provide comprehensive speech & language evaluations and treatment, including group & individual therapy services to children and young adults ages 3-18 diagnosed with constellation of speech/language deficits secondary to psychiatric and emotional disturbances.
