This week I talk to Mara Kubrin, a Speech Language Pathologist based in San Francisco. She is currently working at a rehabilitation center with elderly people, helping them recover speech and language skills as well as teaching them how to swallow. Mara has done so much work with people and knows a ton about different types of therapy including ABA therapy for kids with autism who she worked with before she went to school for her masters in speech language pathology. We also take a moment to discuss Mara’s concerns with repealing the Affordable Care Act. Finally we’ll talk about an app that Mara worked on with Smile Train, to help children around the world born with cleft palates learn to speak properly.
