My Students

I am a Speech Language Pathologist Clinical Fellow in a Title I school in Philadelphia, PA. For the 2018-2019 school year, I am anticipating a case load of approximately 60 students with varying needs. Part of my job as a school Speech Language Pathologist is to tailor my materials to accommodate the diverse needs of each individual, therefore giving my students of all learning levels the tools they need to navigate and understand the world around them. Please help me give my students the best educational environment I can with the materials they want and need. Your donations will make a HUGE difference in my student’s lives. Thank you!

My Project

Many of my students have different and varying needs. Some need assistance in simply saying a sound, others need help with social skills. The items I requested will help me provide appropriate and FUN services to my students.

Your donation will play a vital role in my classroom.

The items such as "I like me", toys, and games, will give my students the opportunity to experience diverse language learning opportunities. I know it may seem odd, how can a game like "SORRY" help a kid in Speech therapy? Games like this are often used to teach turn taking, and appropriate behavior during game play, but for other students it can be used to make therapy more enjoyable.
