My name is Kayla Miller, M.S. CCC-SLP and I am the Owner and Director of Kayla’s Speech Therapy. I am a Colorado and California licensed and nationally certified Speech-language Pathologist. I fell in love with speech therapy when I was in high school volunteering at an inclusion pre-school. Seeing typically developing children and children with developmental delays interact inspired my heart, and I knew I wanted to help. From supporting a child’s development and socialization, to helping parents navigate and implement the best plan for their child, I knew this was my passion from the beginning.
I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, home health, and public/charter schools. I graduated with the highest honors from the University at Arizona with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Speech Language Pathology and a minor in Special Education. I later received my Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from Idaho State University. I maintain certification in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and am licensed in Colorado and California.
I have vast experience working with children in the pediatric population. I have provided diagnostic and therapeutic services for children and adolescents with articulation, receptive/ expressive/pragmatic language, oral-motor, processing, executive functioning and phonological impairments. In addition, I specifically love working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy.
I believe that creating a positive and fun learning environment facilitates my clients to reach their fullest potential. My practice’s mission is based on providing the highest quality of service while working to achieve my clients' speech and language goals. In order to provide the most meaningful and effective therapy, I strive to identify and customize therapy sessions to meet each child’s individual learning style and needs. I strongly believe in incorporating parent education and parent inclusion, which contributes to the success of a child’s progress and growth. I advocate that consistent and continued collaboration with family, teachers, and other therapists is the best way to support my clients in achieving their goals.
When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking, camping, hanging out with family and friends, park days, and relaxing with a good book.
