Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year!
I am excited about working with 4th through 8th grade students this school year. This is my 10th year working in District 90 and it is a joy working with the students as their Speech Therapist!
During therapy sessions, my students will have the opportunity to engage in multiple communication activities that will allow them to improve their articulation, fluency, language, social language and overall communication skills. Additional speech/language activities will be provided after therapy sessions to enhance learning through extra practice with parents. Even 5-10 minutes of extra practice will be beneficial for students to maintain and improve their speech/language skills.
I look forward to working with each student and having a productive and great year! If there are any questions or concerns at any time throughout the school year please feel free to contact me.
