Background

Kim received her undergraduate degree in Dance from York University in Toronto, Canada. After years of dancing and teaching, she completed her graduate degree in Speech Language Pathology from Portland State University. She has worked at Emanuel Children’s Hospital, and Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU). She is currently in private practice at Assistive Technology NW (ATNW) in Portland, OR. She specializes in providing therapy that focuses on developing communication systems for children and adults who are nonverbal or minimally verbal. She approaches therapy looking at the whole person and, therefore, particularly enjoys collaboration. She is also trained as a teacher of “Danceability”, a dance/movement approach that includes people of all abilities. “Not being able to speak is not the same as having nothing to say”.
