"We've known Kim for quite some time now. She's been a therapist for our older son and has done amazing work. So when we were told he needed to see a speech therapist to help with his breastfeeding and latching, we knew exactly where we would go. We have never been disappointed with any of the therapies that we have received from Kim. Anybody that has an infant that has needed lip and tongue revision I have always recommended Kim. She is the best kept secret for speech therapy in Fort Wayne. I would never go anywhere else."
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about myself and my practice. My name is Kimberly Griffith, M.A., CCC-SLP. I have experience that spans over 20 years in the field of speech pathology. Throughout my continuing education, I have placed an emphasis on learning more about the treatment of oral motor issues and dysphagia with an emphasis on oral motor functionality associated with feeding and speech. Along with expanding my knowledge on effective treatment strategies, I have combined current and innovative approaches to achieve positive outcomes for my clients and their families. My training has led me to expand my practice to help mothers and infants that may be having difficulty with breastfeeding. In addition to all of the approaches I implement into my practice, I provide rational for the reasons the child may be having difficulty and together, we will design a program that works best for the family. I believe in a wholistic approach. I welcome a team philosphy and look forward to working with others involved in the child's care. These team members often include: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Audiologists, Teachers, Lactation Consultants, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Myofacial Therapists, Dentists, ENTs, and Chiropractors. Finally, my objective is to design each child's therapy regimen to fit their own specific needs and function around the lifestyle of the family. Family involvement is the key to progress. Therefore, all of my sessions include the family as active participants to increase carryover and promote progress.
