Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am at Challenger Monday through Friday.
For students currently receiving Special Education services:
For students not currently receiving Special Education services: Regardless of special education status, I am still available for consultation. There are several ways to do this --the most efficient way would be approaching your student's teacher with your concerns. Your child's teacher will be able to share his/her observations and will know the next step in who to contact.
Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) are required to have a Master's Degree and an Educational Staff Associate (ESA) state certificate. Most of the SLPs in the ISD also hold their Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from their national professional organization, the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). Certification through ASHA requires an additional year of supervised clinical practice beyond the Master's degree. Many SLPs in the ISD also have state licensure through the Department of Health. To maintain credentials, SLPs routinely take continuing education classes.

About our Program: The Speech and Language Program helps our students to be the best communicators they can be. Every child's needs are unique and we work hard to develop a program that best meets their individual needs. My job as a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is to work on improving a child's ability to articulate their thoughts and ideas, understand the language around them, and use their language more effectively to express their thoughts and/or ideas. They also may work on understanding and interpreting social cues in the world around them to be better communicators with adults and their peers in their environment. As an SLP, I will work to support the teachers, staff, and families to help promote our students' success in the classroom, at home, and in the community.
