Author Biography

Kathleen E. Morris, MS, CCC/SLP is a pediatric speech pathologist who has been in private practice for over twenty years. In 1990 she founded Lakewood Pediatric Therapy in Dallas,Texas, which has additionally become The Sensory Integration Center of Dallas with a satellite clinic, the S.I. Center of Coppell. As Executive Director of both clinics she speaks to parents and professionals regularly, in addition to volunteering in orphanages in Russia and Romania. She also founded the Pediatric Network Foundation, a non-profit organization to provide education on sensory integration as well as support its research. Her passion for providing much-needed information to families, teachers and other professionals led to the goal of educating individuals on a much broader scale beyond her individual speaking opportunities. S.I. Focus magazine is the realization of that goal.
