About the Founder

“Our goal at Sound It Out Speech is to improve each person’s communication skills, increase each person’s self confidence, and help all individuals find their voice.”

Kyra Quinones M.S. CCC-SLP founded Sound It Out Speech Therapy with the idea that therapy should be tailored and personalized to meet the specific needs of the child. She practices this by using evidenced-based experience and creativity, as well as a collaborative approach to give families the tools and information they need so learning continues beyond the therapy session.   Kyra’s scope of practice includes assessing and providing therapy to toddlers, children, and young adults with a variety of speech and language disorders. Prior to starting her own practice, Kyra worked for Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District.
