Speech & Language at Fairview
What is speech therapy & language therapy?
Speech and language therapy are terms used to describe different techniques to help children either learn or regain communication skills. Communication skills include correct pronunciation of sounds and words, language understanding, stuttering or vocal abnormalities.
As a speech therapist, I provide services to Fairview students grades kindergarten through fifth. Whether it is one-on-one or small group speech therapy, my goal is to provide the best experience and treatment possible.
How are students referred and/or evaluated for speech-language services?
Students can be referred by parents or teachers. Once a child is referred, a process involving the parents, teacher, speech-language pathologist, and other school personnel as appropriate begins. If an evaluation is warranted during the process, various speech and/or language assessments are used to identify deficits in speech production, grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, oral expression and/or other language skills.
After the initial evaluation, the student and the family will receive a plan of care, which outlines the steps toward progress. Each therapy session is directed to helping the student attain these goals. The response of the student is measured and adjusted to achieve maximum results.
