Kate’s Testimonials

I have known Kate Ross in several capacities. As a colleague in the birth to three program in which she consulted her SLP services, I learned so much from Kate’s thorough reports and recommendations she provided for families. Her knowledge helped my work with these young children with speech and language needs. I admire Kate’s wealth of knowledge in this field and her respect for the families she works with. As the new director of UVM’s Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Program, Kate informed and encouraged me to apply. Kate is a professor who is available to her students and works at creating a cohesiveness and connection among students in the online program. She stays connected with her past students by sending job opportunities, news in the field and constant encouragement. I am also happy to call Kate a friend.

I have worked with Kate Ross while I was a classroom teacher and as an Early Essential Educator. In each role Kate has been able to provide me with developmentally appropriate goals for children who were and were not participating in special education. Along with these goals Kate has provided me with specific activities and strategies to enhance my classroom environment and instruction. What is nice is that I now can easily access these resources from Kate's website. Recently, Kate has been providing consult for specific students through video-taping. Kate promptly provides verbal and written feedback on the lesson and how it aligns with their goals. This has been successful for planning and moving students through their specific goals.

Our Head Start program has been familiar with Kate’s work for a number of years. Most recently Kate did a workshop for our staff, who work with infants and toddlers. The workshop was “Autism and Early Language Development”. The information disseminated was current and relevant. The staff rated Kate’s effectiveness and knowledge of the topic as excellent. Some comments: “More trainings with Kate Ross!” “This will help me as I work with children and try to assess them.” “This training (sic) would be good for all staff!”
