Julie Kahn


Julie Kahn, a licensed and certified Speech and Language Pathologist, received her bachelors degree in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Illinois and her masters degree in Speech and

Language Pathology from Northwestern University.

Julie has been practicing for 17 years, with 11 years experience in the Glenview Public Schools, grades kindergarten through 8th grade, and has been working for Caryn for the past 8 years.  In addition to her highly active career, Julie is also mother of two boys.

She is a member of the American Speech and Hearing Association and was actively involved in leadership roles in Glenview District 34, including department chair for the district speech pathologists, supervision and mentoring of new speech pathologists and student teachers, and organizing and chairing the Assistive Technology Committee for the district. 

Julie works with children across the age range in the areas of articulation, language processing, verbal expression, and social language. She has developed a special interest in working with children within their preschool classroom. She works with preschool teachers to problem solve communication challenges and to facilitate successful social interactions for her clients.

Julie is very knowledgeable about sensory integration, social emotional development, and development of pre-academic skills, particularly as they relate to the development of a child’s receptive,  expressive,  and social language skills. She works very closely with professionals from other disciplines such as classroom teachers, Occupational Therapists, Developmental Therapists and Psychotherapists to help ensure a child’s overall success.

Julie’s experience working in the public schools has provided her with a strong background in treating school age children and an understanding of services provided within the public setting.

She utilizes this experience to help parents initiate the evaluation process, assist with understanding the services provided within that setting, collaborate consistently with school staff, and attend meetings with parents as an integral member of the child’s team.
