My Students

In Bossier Parish, we have 31 Speech Language Pathologist (SLPs) that service students from PK-12th grade. These 31 SLPs provide therapy for over 1,500 students within Bossier Parish who present with an articulation, expressive/receptive language, fluency, and/or voice disorders. You can find these students in any elementary, middle, or high school.

These speech kiddos are humble, kind, and love learning and improving their speech and language skills.

The speech therapy setting is a "hub" for students who are in need of increasing their speech and language skills. Students across the parish visit the speech therapy room at least 1-2 times a week for a variety of delays and disorders that impede performance in their classroom setting, home, and other natural environments.

My Project

Sometimes the best way to instill a love of reading for a child is to do it over and over and over. Even if those students are not strong readers themselves, they can learn to love books read to them and learn to comprehend the books through activities and picture explanations. And what is the best way to improve vocabulary? Reading of course! SLPs across Bossier Parish utilize literacy-based speech therapy. Not only can they use the same book for many different levels and ages of students, but they can extend one book for an entire month's lesson.

This project is literally for every student that receives speech and language services in the elementary school setting!

For students who have been identified with a language delay/disorder, they can work on "wh" questions, story retelling and sequencing. Also, articulation therapy can be incorporated into literacy activities no matter the level they are currently working. These books will be an amazing addition to any SLP's therapy room in the parish.
