Katy Echevarria M.S. CCC-SLP lifelong passion for children first found a foothold in the field of teaching. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with ESOL endorsement and taught for the Miami Dade school system for several years. Her experiences as a teacher made her realize that she wanted to direct her passion toward one-on-one sessions with children, rather than addressing them in a classroom setting. It was during this time that she pursued her masters in Speech Language Pathology, eventually going on to specialize in children and young adults (ages 0-21).
Katy is certified in the Beckman Oral Motor approach, Autism Navigator, and PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System). She sits on the special needs board for the city of Doral, which meets to discuss issues like the lack of special needs programs in schools, as well as organizing events for special needs kids. She is an associate with FAAST (Florida Alliance for Assistive Services and Technology) and is accredited by ASHA (American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association). Katy also participates in community health fairs, back-to-school nights, and provides educational seminars for schools and career days.
