Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Apollo!

My name is Tina Correa-Barron and I am the Speech Language Pathologist at Apollo Elementary.  This is my third year at Apollo and I am so excited to work with the amazing students and parents at Apollo again this year.

A Little About Me:

This is my eighth year working as a speech-language pathologist and my sixth year working in the school setting.    I received a Master of Science degree in Speech Language Pathology from Teachers College at Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Linguistics and History from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

I'm originally from the mission city of San Fernando in the greater Los Angeles, California area.  I served in the military for five years before going to college.  I enjoy learning new languages.  I am passionate about dual language acquisition, motor speech disorders and augmentative-alternative communication (AAC) systems.

Information for Parents

Message to Parents:

  • Children may receive speech services if their speech and/or language adversely affect their educational performance for remediation of speech (articulation, fluency/stuttering), social communication, language or hearing impairments. 

  • A child may be referred by a parent or teacher to be considered for an evaluation by the evaluation team.

  • The child's speech and/or language must impact on their educational performance in order to be eligible for services.

  • Should you have any questions about the process for referrals or wish to discuss your child's current program please feel free to contact me at correabarronc@issaquah.wednet.edu so that we can set up an appointment. 

  • Speech and language goals are most successful when there is carryover at home. Activities have been posted which can be practiced at home.  I hope these links and information sites will provide you with a better understanding of your child's program and ideas for carryover at home.   

  • Please make sure that I have your must current e-mail and other contact information so that I can continue to stay in touch regarding your child's speech program.
