Welcome to Speech Language Therapy

My name is Deana Marie Ureña, Casimir Pulaski's School Speech-Language Pathologist. This is my fifth year working as an SLP in Yonkers Public Schools, and my third year at Pulaski. I received my Bachelor's Degree at Pace University in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2012.  I obtained my Master of Science at Mercy College in Speech Language Pathology in 2014. I also hold my Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC-SLP), PRAXIS II Certification and my Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSSLD) license to practice in NYS. I am your child's SLP for the 2019-2020 school year.


    Dear Parents and Guardians, 

    I understand this is not the way we expected to end our school year. However, I am so proud of how much we have accomplished through this virtual learning experience.  I thank you all for your hard work and efforts during this difficult time. 

    If you haven't done so already, please check your emails for summer work and certificates!

    I am wishing you all a happy and healthy summer, spent with close family and friends. #PULASKISTRONG
