Located in West Bloomfield, Michigan, a northwest suburb of Detroit, the KCC is an award-winning facility, recognized by the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Association (MSHA) with their prestigious Clinical Service Award. In addition, Nancy Kaufman was awarded the MSHA Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the Michigan State University College of Communication Arts & Sciences Outstanding Alumni Award in 2010.

We invite you to contact the KCC if you have concerns about your child’s speech, language, motor, sensory or social development. We are always happy to address your questions, and if needed, schedule an evaluation.
