Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year in

    Speech and Language! 


    The objective of speech-language therapy is to integrate students' goals with academic outcomes and functional performance to be better communicators. In order to be effective communicators, speech-language therapy fosters necessary skills to communicate including verbal and written expression of language, understanding verbal and written language, and accurately producing target sounds.

    How to get involved in your childs' progress: 

    1. Your child will receive a speech folder at the beginning of the school year. Practice homework will be sent home periodically to reinforce your child's specific targeted goals. This may include completing a worksheet, activity, or orally practicing words. Please sign each homework assignment and return as indicated. This will help your child generalize the goals they are working on into the home setting! 

    2. Below are some fun resources that you and your child can access in order to continue working on goals at home! 


    If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me by email at dsirota@jacksonsd.org or write me a note in your child's speech folder. I am looking forward to a fun and successful year in speech!
