I am the Speech/Language Pathologist at AOES for the 15-16 school year. My area of focus is working with children who have a diagnosed speech or language disorder which results in a significant, negative impact on their educational performance.
Speech/Language services include
- Receptive language (understanding) and Expressive language use
- for example, understanding and using age and grade appropriate concepts and vocabulary
- Articulation: correct pronunciation of age appropriate speech sounds
- Fluency: (stuttering - usually an abnormal rhythm of speech due to repeated sounds, parts of words and words).
My work with children includes group or individual speech sessions for students who qualify for special education in CCSD.
I also provide teachers and parents strategies to facilitate speech and language development.
