Location: Fort Worth

I’m Kim Dillon, M.A., CCC-SLP and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2014 as a speech language pathologist.  In addition to my SLP duties, I am Co-Creator and facilitator of the Fort Worth Monkey U Preschool Prep Program along with Nikki Rustad, M.A., CCC-SLP.  I attended Texas A&M University for undergrad and the University of North Texas for graduate school.  Before joining the Monkey Mouths team, I worked in public schools where I evaluated and treated children ages 3-18 with speech and language disorders. I also created and monitored Individualized Education Plans for each student and served on an interdisciplinary Autism assessment team, evaluating and providing recommendations for students.

I have a passion for giving children a means to communicate.  I enjoy creating a plan that is meaningful and specific for each child using the different skills and knowledge I’ve received over the years. 

My husband, Levi and I have 3 sons and a daughter and in my free time I enjoy exercising, reading, swimming, and spending time with my family. 

As an SLP with over 14 years of experience, I have training and specialization in the following:
