We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Kay Caprez!
Kay is a Speech-Language Pathologist who has been with LLA for 1.5 years! She serves clients in our Hudson and Fairlawn Clinics. She chose to become a therapist because her brother received auditory-verbal speech therapy as a kid after he had his cochlear implant placed. She LOVED it when his speech therapists let her tag along and play all of their fun games! She wanted to be able to help kiddos like her brother…and have fun at work every day. One of her favorite things about being a therapist is having fun with the kiddos and building relationships with the amazing families!
