Karen Parden, Speech Language Pathologist

Hello!

My name is Karen Parden. I am a Speech Language Pathologist for Huntsville City Schools. I have been an SLP since 2001 and I have been with HCS since 2003. I have worked with adults and with children, and my heart is working with kids in the education setting. I have extensive training in Auditory-Verbal Therapy and very much enjoy working with the hearing impaired population. My goal is to help children communicate and participate in their learning environment and their home environment. I love working with parents to help children achieve maximum progress. Please feel free to contact me anytime regarding developmental norms for speech or language concerns, or if you have any questions. Good speech is worth hearing!
