Let me introduce myself. My name is Robyn Kinigson and I hold my Ohio state licensure, ASHA certified speech language pathologist. I have worked with children from birth and beyond for more than 10 years. As part of my therapy practice I offer free screenings, lectures regarding typical and atypical language development, typical speech sound production, sensory play and language development, tackling feeding difficulties and when to refer for a speech language evaluation. Therapy will be done in the child's most natural environment and focus on support for families and caregivers, as well as, teaching the child the skills needed to succeed.
I use the principles of Dr. Stanley Greenspan's DIR/Floortime in my therapy sessions to address language development, social growth and executive functioning skills. Focusing on a child centered approach leads to independence and unlocking the child's natural abilities and potential. Sensory play is incorporated to ensure the child is centered and able to absorb and improve language skills.
Kay Toomey's SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) program to feeding difficulties works with the whole child: sensory skills, developmental skills and oral motor skills. Children will explore and learn about food so they will be able to tolerate, touch, kiss, taste and eventually eat. Eating is a social activity and through this approach children learn that eating is fun! Oral motor skills are targeted through fun activities to keep the child engaged and challenged.
