We are happy to announce the addition of a wonderful new therapist – Kimberli Hyzdu, (pronounced HI-Z-DO).
(To make it easy to remember the pronunciation pretend you’re saying hi to someone, add a Z sound and then say do).

Kimberli is a registered Speech-Language Pathology Assistant and has been working in the field since 2011. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech – Language Pathology and Audiology – from California State University of Sacramento.

Immediately after graduation, she began the Speech- Language Pathology Assistant program. She has experience in a wide variety of speech, language, and hearing disorders. She has successfully worked with all of the following:

– Autism Spectrum
– Asperger’s
– Apraxia
– Articulation
– Attention Deficit
– Auditory Processing
– Developmental Delays
– Neurogenic Disorders
– Sensory / Social and Behavioral challenges

Kimberli has also had 4 years of education in American Sign Language and enjoys incorporating it into therapy as needed.

She truly enjoys working with both adults and children and is compassionate, skilled, and dedicated to our field.
Kimberli has acquired specialized skills working with the early intervention population, (0-3). Her use of creative activities keeps the little ones engaged and learning naturally through play.

She provides excellent carryover activities for parents to easily transfer skills to the home. She is equally skilled working with youth and adults using individualized programs with proven therapeutic outcomes. Kimberli is passionate about helping individuals with communication difficulties by providing life-improving speech services to them with personal warmth, and professionalism.

Nancy Barcal is one of the first Licensed Speech-Language Pathologists to be featured on Speech Buddies Connect. Nancy has been using the speech buddy tools since 2010 to speed progress in therapy and save families money.

Speech Buddies are a set of revolutionary tools to help children overcome speech difficulties. By teaching correct tongue positioning for the five most difficult sounds – R, S, L, CH, and SH – children learn and feel how to correct a problem sound. Speech Buddies were designed by a team of expert speech-language pathologists and engineers from MIT & Columbia Universities.
