Kim French

Registered Speech-Language Pathologist, Autism Consultant, CEO

Kim grew up in Paradise, NL. In 2004, Kim earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Memorial University with a major in Linguistics and minor in Psychology. She remained at Memorial to complete a Master of Arts degree (2009) in Linguistics.  In 2011, she graduated from the University of Maine with a Master of Arts degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders.  ​​Upon graduation, Kim began her career in private practice doing home visits in the Mount Pearl/St. John’s area. She quickly developed a strong passion for working with autistic clients and their families. ​In 2019, Kim was trained in administering the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, second edition (ADOS-2). She works with Mindful Matters Counselling and Psychological Services, Inc. as a part of the multidisciplinary Autism Assessment Team.  

In 2022, Kim formed Kim French & Associates and moved her practice to her hometown of Paradise, NL. Over her career, she worked with clients with a variety of communication disorders using a relationship-first approach to therapy. Kim has a keen interest in child development and the interwoven nature of emotion, attachment, language, play, and development. She uses the knowledge gained from training and experience to aid her in both intervention and in coaching/consulting with parents and families.  Kim has also learned the beautiful impact of creating a strong attachment relationship between a therapist and a child. She strives to maintain an open and neurodiversity affirming practice for her clients and associates. 

When not working, Kim loves to play the role of adoring aunt to her two nephews, read books, watch scary movies, do yoga, run, meditate, and hang out at home with her husband, Adam, and their two dogs, Lola and Arffee.
