Welcome back, students and parents - it's going to be a great year!

What do students learn in Speech Therapy?  We work on learning to say new sounds, learning vocabulary, using smooth speech and learning how to put a good sentence together.

Students usually come to Speech class once or twice a week.  I frequently send homework for parents to do with students at home.  This helps parents keep up-to-date on what we are working on and helps solidify new skills.  Students receive "incentives" when they return homework on a consistent basis.

I meet with parents at least once a year to review their child's progress and talk about therapy for the next academic year.  This meeting is the "IEP" meeting - Individual Education Plan.  I'll get in touch with you a couple of weeks before the IEP is due for review to set up a meeting.  I will be at Briarcrest this year on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Call me at 368-4170 if you have any questions.
