Ms. Valdovinos Speech Class

My name is Ms. Edith Valdovinos, Thomas Cornell Academy's Speech-Language Pathologist. I will be your child's SLP for the 2020-2021 school year. As you know, we will be using Microsoft Teams as our virtual therapy platform. I have created a Speech Team for each of your children! Please make sure you can log on and access it. You will find important updates and information about their scheduled, therapy time. Each meeting is set to "reoccurring" on their calendars so that you will be reminded each week. If your phone numbers or email addresses have changed, please email me ASAP!
