Julie Kahn


Julie Kahn, a licensed and certified Speech and Language Pathologist, received her bachelor's 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 20 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.

Julie works with children across the age range in the areas of articulation, language processing, verbal expression, and social language. She specializes in working with children with apraxia of speech, phonological articulation disorders, and is trained in the PROMPT Method (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) which is a multidimensional approach to speech production disorders.

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.

In addition, Julie volunteers with Selah, a choir for adults with special needs. Julie also facilitates a teen girls leadership group through the organization Moving Tradition.
