Danielle Kochavy

I’m a Brooklyn, NY native. I have been a Speech Language Pathologist for a little over 10 years. I attended Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology in Fall 2007. In the Spring of 2009, I attended Valdosta State University in Valdosta, GA where I received a Master of Education degree with an emphasis in Communication Disorders. This year, I will be completing a Doctor of Education degree in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in Special Education. Currently, I am licensed to practice Speech Therapy in the District of Columbia and Maryland. My areas of expertise are in language and literacy, fluency, cognitive-communicative impairments, and augmentative communication. Either currently or in the past, I have worked with the preschool through adult population. My client’s diagnoses have varied from Autism, Developmental Delay, Emotional Disturbance, Down Syndrome, Language Disorders, and Articulation Disorder just to name a few. Since 2016, I have been in higher education as an Adjunct Professor of Speech Language Pathology, Assistant Professor of Education, and now a Clinical Educator in HSLS at Gallaudet University.

Professional interests: One of the many aspects that I love about being in the field of Speech Pathology is I can have multiple interests. My interests are in supervision, assessments specific to assessing children from various cultures, language and literacy, AAC, special education, cognition, and dysphagia diagnostics.

Outside interests: Spending time with family and friends, traveling, and cooking.
