Distance Learning Speech/Language Questions and Concerns

During the next two weeks, I will be available via email as we are out of school.  If you have questions or concerns regarding your child's speech/language services please reach out to me. Under the Resources section of my website you will find online resources to help practice your child's skills at home.  If you are interested in some paper worksheets please email me and I can send you paper resources as well.  

My email address is tkinkade@sps186.org
