My name is Cara Glodowski and it's hard to believe, but this is my 26th year in practice as a Speech Language Pathologist. I grew up in Connecticut but I have been living in the Midwest for the past 30 years, even though I will always be a beach girl at heart. I received my master’s degree here at the University of Kansas. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Most recently I worked a teletherapy assignment in California. It was fun to work in a different time zone and place, without leaving home.

This is why many schools are leaning toward a school-based therapy approach. With guardian permission, kids are able to work with healthcare professionals to get needed therapy within the school day. Taking therapists out of their clinics and putting them into school makes it more affordable and convenient.
