Dedicated to continued cutting-edge professional development, Ms, Kornsweig is a 5-time recipient of the Award for Continuing Education from ASHA. Originally headed toward a career in Clinical Psychology at SUNY Albany, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, Ms. Kornsweig found her “true calling” during her first course in communication disorders.

- Parlaying her speech pathology skills to the “corporate” world, she created Accent & Speech Solutions, offering success-oriented communication coaching and training to professionals and the organizations they work for.
- Making the connection between corporate “soft-skills” and similar demands that are particularly challenging for those with Asperger’s, she added Making Asperger’s Work.
