My Students

I am a speech-language pathologist who provides speech therapy services to small rural school districts. I work with preschool through high school age students with special needs.

My students have speech and language delays with varying disabilities such as articulation disorders, language disorders, hearing impairments, cognitive impairments, learning disabilities, and autism.

My caseload consists of students with a variety of learning needs. I provide speech therapy services to students in a variety of locations such as elementary school, middle school, high school, preschool, daycare, colonies and home visits.

My Project

The speech room is in need of interactive therapy materials such as What's in Ned's Head, Hide and Seek Board Bundle, 1-10 Counting Owls, Riddle Moo This Game, Hungry Pelican Toy, and Stacking Cups and Shapes to work on individualized speech and language goals.

The interactive materials will keep my students engaged and on task while working on the individualized speech and language goals.

The items selected will be used with many of my students on my caseload. The materials will help to work on improving their speech, language, listening and vocabulary skills.

These materials will help make speech sessions hands-on and interactive. These hands-on materials will be effective for teaching a variety of skills.

My budget has been drastically cut in recent years. Without the help of generous donors, we can not afford even the most basic supplies. Please help me to get my students the supplies we need for a successful speech therapy program.
