Nancy R. Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP is the owner and director of the Kaufman Children’s Center for Speech, Language, Sensory-Motor, and Social Connections, Inc. (KCC). Since 1979, Nancy has dedicated herself to establishing the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), a treatment approach to help children become effective vocal communicators.

Nancy serves on the professional advisory board of the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA), on the board of visitors of Wayne State University’s Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development, and is the speech-language pathologist consultant for the Parish School and Carruth Center in Houston, Texas, and Suburban Speech Center in Short Hills, New Jersey.

Nancy was awarded the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Association (MSHA) Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the West Bloomfield Township Chamber of Commerce Community Excellence Business Person of the Year Award in 2015. She was also recognized by the Lawrence Technological University Leaders & Innovators program. Nancy has been honored by both of her alma maters: in 2010 Michigan State University awarded her the Outstanding Alumni Award, and in 2015 she received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Wayne State University. The KCC has received MSHA’s Clinical Service Award and Corp! Magazine’s Best of Michigan Business Award. 

Nancy is the author of several products designed to help children who struggle to speak using the K-SLP methods, most recently the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol Instructional DVD Set. Many specialists in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) have adopted the K-SLP for children with autism spectrum disorders. Nancy lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on the subject of childhood apraxia of speech and other speech sound disorders in children. Families from around the country and the world travel to the Kaufman Children’s Center to participate in intensive and specialized therapy programs. The KCC continues to grow and has earned a reputation for excellence, warmth, and successful outcomes.

Nancy received her BA at Michigan State University and MA at Wayne State University, having been awarded a graduate assistantship. She has three grown children and resides with her husband in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
