My Students

I am a Speech Pathologist in a Title I school. I work with students who are faced with a variety of family, economic, and social challenges. These same children are also challenged with speech language impairments, intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and so much more.

In spite of their adversities, diagnoses, and daily challenges, my students are motivated and determined to learn and achieve.

My goal is to give my students the opportunity to achieve academically and communicate effectively and efficiently.

My Project

As a speech therapist, I see my students for continuous years. As the year has progressed, it has become apparent that my materials have become redundant and my students are seeking more as they are advancing and targeting their goals. New supplies to create new materials (i.e., ink and lamenting paper) will allow me to get creative and provide new and exciting activities. Additionally, my goal is to have my students be intrinsically motivated to succeed however, sometimes they need more than that. Therefore, I have created a reward system that gives them that extra push. Stickers, and small wind up toys help motivate my students to reach their goals and work hard.

My students have limited life experiences and I have made it a priority to expose them to vocabulary and real life experiences through speech/language lessons.

Books and puzzles about seasons, holidays, and community helpers will increase their exposure, awareness and vocabulary. Play activities such as the food play sets will allow them to have hands on experiences with such items.

This year, my caseload has an increasing number of preschool and kindergarten students. Therefore, spatial concepts, wh- questions, and first words/sounds are targeted everyday. Books, action cards and spatial concept cards will be used to target "where" questions and "what doing" questions. Overall, my students need updated resources to enhance learning and fun in speech!
