Recent Graduate Committed to Building Confidence Through Communication!
Help me give my students the supplies that I can use to expose them to language and give them the skills that they so desperately need to communicate. As an SLP working with this population, visuals are key!

I am a recent graduate beginning her career as a Speech-Language Pathologist in Bridgeport, CT. I am so excited to begin servicing the ASD population and look forward to sharing our success as a team!
My current caseload consists of about 45 students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
They range from preschool to 8th grade. Research shows that visual learning is key with this population in targeting functional goals and objectives.
Any contribution can help change the lives of these wonderful children!
Working as a Speech-Language Pathologist is said to be one of the most challenging---yet rewarding---jobs in today’s world of education. As a recent graduate, this role can appear extremely overwhelming, especially with the burden of both undergraduate and graduate student loans. With some support and financial assistance, I am certain that I will provide the support and exposure that the children in my district need to thrive!
Being an SLP working mainly with the autistic population, I am limited in the materials that I can use.
After endless research and communication with other professionals, it has been concluded that visual learning is key. Having the ability to print and laminate with a new printer and laminator will open doors that these children would not otherwise have had the keys for. Books, worksheets, and coloring pages would serve as great opportunities for targeting goals such as following directions, sequencing, maintaining eye contact, turn taking, and more.
Any and all assistance and support is greatly appreciated!
