My Students

I am a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant at an elementary and middle school. My students range from students with articulation errors, stuttering, language and literacy, to autism. They are in a low-income neighborhoods and a military base. My students are so eager to learn new things all the time. They come from multiple classrooms ranging from Pre-K to 8th grade.

It is my goal to provide them with the materials necessary to be successful in and outside of our speech therapy room.

My Project

The Expanding Expression Tool is a simple, hands-on approach that guarantees results. This tool can be used for general descriptions, writing from prior knowledge, autobiographies/biographies, summarizing and more. My students will learn how to independently use this approach to build vocabulary and comprehension. There is evidence that this technique is effective with students with speech and language delays. The "EETchy" worm is fun, motivating, and effective!

Incorporating the Expanding Expression Tool into my speech and language classroom will impact my students forever.

They will learn new vocabulary in a fun and enriching manner. By increasing their vocabulary and verbal expression, they will succeed socially and academically.
