Meet our Speech & Language Pathologists
Claire Burgos, SLP
Claire is an award-winning Licensed Speech Pathologist who joined Kinera Foundation in 2022. She is from Williamsville, NY and a graduate of George Washington University. She has specialty training in the use of Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) Words for Life (WFL), a therapeutic approach based on neurological and motor learning principles. The goal is to give individuals who are nonverbal or have limited verbal abilities a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves in any setting. LAMP Words for Life is designed to meet the communication needs of children with autism. It combines the power of PRC’s Unity® language system and Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP™), a proven-therapeutic approach that uses consistent motor plans for accessing vocabulary.
Claire has also had extensive training in The DIR®/Floortime® Model, which promotes development by encouraging children to interact with parents and others through play. This therapy is designed for autistic children and children with other developmental disorders. It’s recommended that children start this therapy as early as possible.
In her free time, Claire enjoys music, travel, reading and time with family.
