About Kate Pilant

I received my B.A. in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, with a minor in Linguistics, from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I worked as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant in the Colorado Public School System before moving to Seattle to complete my M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Washington. Following graduation I worked in a private practice on the Eastside, where I developed a keen appreciation for the involvement of a child’s family in the therapy process, as well as a strong belief in the power of collaboration among and within professions. I worked with clients who had a wide range of speech and language needs, including articulation, phonology, receptive and expressive language, stuttering, literacy, and voice, as well as disorders including childhood apraxia of speech, autism spectrum disorders, and language learning disabilities. In 2010, I transitioned into the Snohomish School District, where I was afforded a new perspective in utilizing multi-disciplinary teams and expanded my ability to directly target academic development through speech-language therapy. I presently work in my private practice full-time.
