In addition to her therapeutic endeavors, Kathleen is much in demand as a presenter. She is available to present to a variety of audiences, including small-large parent groups, panel discussions, and workshops for professional development.

Her exuberant and enthusiastic presentation style comes from her deep commitment to children, adults and their families. Her family’s “pass-it-along” philosophy carries the momentum of her message, including the importance of:

  • Development of executive function skills, i.e. self-regulation, meta-cognition, critical thinking, inference and perspective-taking in literacy development
  • Communication and relationships
  • Encouraging reciprocal connections
  • Support and inter-professional collaboration around issues and challenges
