The story behind the name.
"While working in a public school, one of Anthony's students wanted to get his attention while walking down the hall. As typical of many children Anthony works with, he had difficulty retrieving the name 'Mr. K' and so he cleverly shouted, 'hey speech guy!' instead. The name stuck."
In addition to clinical speech and language services, Anthony has longstanding experience with educational initiatives including program evaluation, in-service training, and literacy training for special educators, speech pathologists, and general educators; specifically related to writing. He is available for educational and research consultation in any of these areas.
