Nancy is the owner and director of the Kaufman Children’s Center for Speech, Language, Sensory Motor, and Social Connections, Inc. The Kaufman Children’s Center also specializes in ABA programming for children with autism spectrum disorders. 

Since 1979, Nancy has dedicated herself to establishing the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol, a treatment approach to help children become effective vocal communicators. Nancy serves on the professional advisory council of Apraxia Kids and has been a consultant with The Parish School and The Carruth Center since 2011.
