Kimberly Prayner, M.A., Au.D., CCC-A/SLP
Kim received her undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders with a minor in Education of the Hearing Impaired from Bloomsburg University in 1992. She continued her studies to earn a Master’s Degree in Audiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Doctorate in Audiology from the University of Florida. Kim spent over 20 years as an audiologist in a variety of settings including hospitals, private practice, and consultant/representative in the hearing aid industry. In 2011, she made the decision to expand her role in communication disorders and returned to the University of Northern Colorado to receive a Master’s in Speech Language Pathology. Most recently she has worked as pediatric Speech Language Pathologist at a private practice.
Kim is passionate about working with pediatric patients and finding ways to maximize their functional communication skills. She believes family involvement is a key component for children to reach their full potential. Kim has a vast array of experience working with children who have apraxia, autism, cleft palate, cognitive disabilities, dysfluency/stuttering, hearing loss, non-verbal language, social skills deficits, and speech/language deficits.
Kim recently relocated to Lewes from Alaska with her husband Bill and their three cats, Charlie, Sherman, and Bubba. Her two grown children attend college on the East coast. She is an avid baker and is committed to organizations that help those with food insecurity. Kim is excited to explore all that Southern Delaware has to offer, especially the beach. She is thrilled to be a part of Child Inspired Therapy and looks forwarding to working with Sussex County families.
