Kimberly Cortes, M.S. CCC-SLP

For nearly a decade, I have had the honor of serving clients from ages 2 to 99. As a bilingual SLP, I enjoy working closely with my Spanish-speaking clients and their families, to ensure they not only receive appropriate services, but also gain knowledge in what speech therapy is and how to improve communication skills. My primary work had been with preschool-age children with a variety of diagnoses, but I have also worked alongside older children, as well as adults who are navigating acquired conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and more.

About

Kim

What was your path to becoming a provider?

Watching my older sister struggle with a speech delay, as well as having the opportunity to observe some wonderful SLPs in action, really sparked my passion for this profession.

What gets you excited about Parallel?

I'm excited to be joining a team that is so passionate and invested in helping their clients. The attention to detail I've encountered thus far, as well as the kindness among team members, make it seem as if this will be a wonderful work environment!

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

We all have different ways of learning, and no one should ever be made to feel ashamed or unable to access the learning opportunities that those around them are receiving.
