Hi! My name is Niki Klein Imber and I am a Speech Language Pathologist and Feeding Specialist based in NYC. I am ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) Certified. I received a Bachelor of Science in Human Development from Cornell University and a Master of Science Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Columbia University, Teachers College.

I absolutely love working with children! Each child is unique and I strive to make each therapy session fun and motivating by incorporating your child’s individual communication and/or feeding goals and interests. I treat a wide range of early childhood speech/language and feeding difficulties. My past experiences have included working with infants, toddlers, and school age children in inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, schools, and Early Intervention. 

 

I believe in utilizing various therapeutic techniques to help your child achieve his or her communication and feeding goals. I have advanced training in a number of specialized treatment methodologies, including PROMPT, Orofacial Myology, SOS Approach to Feeding, Beckman Oral Motor Assessment and Intervention, Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) for Speech Motor Learning, The Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Approach, Sounds in Motion, Auditory Verbal Therapy, Social Thinking, and Collaborative Problem Solving. I am an Apraxia Kids recognized therapist and currently pursing certification to become a Listening and Spoken Language Specialist (LSLS) and working on the certification process for Qualification in Orofacial Myology (QOM)
