A Note From The Desk of Your          

                                                                                   Speech Language Pathologist

Language is our most human characteristic. It is essential to learning, working, and enjoying family life and friendships. There are many ways to express language. Speaking, using sign language, writing, and using computerized communication devices are some of the most common ones. The professionals who are educated to assess speech and language development and to treat language and speech disorders are speech-language pathologists (sometimes informally referred to as speech therapists). Speech-language pathologists can also help people with swallowing disorders. (ASHA)

Speech-language therapy helps students with developmental or acquired problems with language and articulation of words in speech. Therapy can target many different need areas, such as vocabulary, semantics, comprehension, language processing, motor speech disorders, phonological disorders, phonemic awareness and functional communication, to name a few.
