Kristi Chamberlain is an experienced Speech Language Pathologist who is currently providing in person speech therapy to children in Hampton Roads, and virtual speech therapy to children across Virginia. Originally from Florida, Kristi earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree at the University of Florida. During her graduate study, she worked as a research assistant studying the relationship between central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) and reading disorders. While still in school, Kristi moved to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in an internship at the Craniofacial Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This experience allowed her to learn specialized skills for working with children with cleft lip and palate and velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI). Since graduating in 2003, Kristi has worked in various settings such as a pediatric hospital, public schools, early intervention and a school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These different settings helped Kristi become efficient in treating many different diagnoses. She is passionate about working closely with children and their families to reach their goals. Kristi believes in establishing a trusting and fun relationship with her clients in order to increase learning. Kristi also knows that each child learns differently and she makes it a point to tailor each session to the individual child.
