The McKibben & Monte team focuses on comprehensive early childhood intervention evaluation and treatment, because EARLY INTERVENTION = KINDERGARTEN READY

Research shows that well-developed speech, language, emotional, and occupational skills significantly impact a child’s ability to become a competent reader, writer, and student. At McKibben & Monte, our early intervention programs focus on addressing needs of the whole child, including:

  • Speech and language development
  • Social and emotional regulation
  • Behavior modification
  • Fine motor skills
  • Feeding skills

​Having competence in these areas is key to building confidence in children ages 2 ½ – 5, and ensuring they are “kindergarten ready.”

As speech-language pathologists with over 50 years of combined experience – and working parents themselves – Cindy McKibben and Jenny Monte recognize the importance of effectively balancing work and family life. Collaborating with top tier daycares and preschools in the major Ohio markets, McKibben & Monte’s team provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment during the school day, bringing peace of mind to parents and preserving valuable family time after work hours.
