Hi! My name is Niki Klein Imber and I am a Speech Language Pathologist, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), early childhood expert, and mom. If you are concerned about your child’s speech, language or feeding development, I can help! 

 

I am ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) Certified. I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Development from Cornell University and my Master of Science Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Columbia University, Teachers College.

 

Prior to opening my private practice, I spent years training and working at NYU Langone Medical Center, The Gillen Brewer School, and New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. 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 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 (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets)

  • Orofacial Myology

  • SOS Approach to Feeding

  • The Lidcombe Program

  • 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

  • Collaborative Problem Solving.

 

In addition to private therapy, I also offer “baby and me” classes, speak at events, and provide live trainings to educate and empower caregivers/teachers how to best support their little one’s developing skills. Please reach out for a free consultation phone call to see how we can work together.
