My Students

I am a Speech Language Pathologist at a New Orleans Public school. My students really need Speech Buddies & Speech Practice Cards Flashcard Game for assisstance with developing speech. We also have a large population of special needs students. We are High Poverty High Performance school. Most of my students are from an urban, low income and a majority are on Free Lunch program. I need these essential speech tools/supplies for my class that would assist with remediating deficiencies for those students who receive speech therapy services.

My Project

This project will provide my students with tools designed to provide tactile feedback in order to correctly articulate hard to master speech sounds.

Many of my students have articulation delays that affect their ability to effectively express themselves, that is why my students need Speech Buddies Therapy Tools and Speech Practice Cards.

Many of these students have challenges acheiving correct speech sound production using traditional therapy methods. Speech buddies are designed to assist by providing tactile feedback and are clinically proven to work twice as fast as traditional therapy techniques.

My students will use Speech Buddies to work towards mastering correct production of speech sounds. Better articulation will lead to increased self esteem and self confidence to express themselves.
