Dear Students and Families,
I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. We have worked so hard this year and have learned and developed many skills. Please continue to grow your child's speech and language development during this time at home. Engaging in activities such as, reading a book, playing a board game, playing various games (e.g., Simon Says, Uno, Cards....) and during daily home activites can continue to enhance your child's langauge development and communciaiton skills. Since libraries are closed, you can listen to and read along with books on YouTube and discuss the stories as a family.
Please click on "Useful Links" for various speech, language, and augmentative communication resources.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that I have your contact infomation, may answer your questions and provide you with direct therapy instructions to best support your child's development at home.
I am available Monday-Friday during the hours of 9-12:30 at which time I will do my best to respond to your emails in a promptly manner.
I look forward to being back in school with you all!!
