My Students

"One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter." James Earl Jones

I have the pleasure of working with amazing students that are learning to communicate and understand the world around them.

I provide speech and language services to students in the general education setting as well as the special education setting. Unfortunately, the special education budget has been cut in half. My students have speech and language impairments. Some also have severe disabilities, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, learning disabilities, other health impairments, emotional disturbances, Down Syndrome, and autism. 51% of our students receive free to reduced lunch due to the high poverty level of my school. Their exposure to language at home may be limited. My speech and language students come to school eager to learn and communicate with everyone!

My Project

My project will enable me to attend continuing education and professional development in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I will learn new techniques for alternative augmentative communication, language and literacy.

My students will be introduced to my newly attained skills from my professional development to learn letters, letter sounds, and vocabulary to function in the community with their communication, reading, and writing.

In addition, the conference will allow me to network with other Speech Language Pathologists in the state of Virginia to collaborate ideas and techniques. Many renowned experts in the area of speech and language will be presenting current research and treatment approaches.
