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.

Now, a new factor may hurt children with special needs more than many understand.
