Hi! I’m Kayla. I have almost 10 years of professional experience working with children, including my years as a preschool teacher. I specialize in Early Intervention Speech Therapy with children ages 18 months to 3 years old. I received extra training on Autism Spectrum Disorders in my master’s program at San Diego State University. My passion is to educate and empower families with the skills to help their speech delayed child progress and communicate effectively.
I am the founder and director of Walkie Talkie Speech Therapy, Inc., which I created to help other speech therapists love their job as much as I do and to help families make the maximum amount of progress with a caring, well-trained speech therapist in the comfort of their home! I look forward to working with you and your little one soon.Kayla Chalko
We were very lucky to be assigned Kayla as our speech therapist through San Diego Regional Center. In the last 5 months, Kayla has turned my son from a toddler who couldn’t play with toys or engaged with people to someone who plays instruments, sings, smiles, engages in play with other people, uses his imagination, follows directions and is patient. When we started he couldn’t even sit still or play attention long enough to teach him. She really changed his life and our life for the better. She is positive and informative. Always gave us great tips and tricks and my favorite was her YouTube channel, which we will continue to subscribe to. Thank you so much Kayla! M.P.
