My Students

I am a Speech-Language therapist at an elementary school. My kids are all so different and awesome! I get to work with students of all types. They range from general ed students that work on articulation... to severely impaired non-verbal students, and everything in between! I love my job and my kids!

Since I work on a little bit of everything with my students, I try to keep a wide range of materials and manipulatives on hand.

I work on articulation, grammar, social skills, stuttering, and assistive technology. I serve grades PreK-3rd, three year olds, and two special needs classrooms.

My Project

I am in need of new materials for my younger students. Puzzles are a great material to hit all of their speech goals! I work with three year olds, three PreK classes and a special needs Prek Class (PPCD). My students love puzzles and they make for great hands-on learning. I can use the pictures on the puzzle pieces to work on articulation, language, basic vocabulary, colors, counting and requesting. My students' goals are very broad and I am able to use lots of different types of toys or materials in my classroom when working on their individualized education plans (IEP).
