Welcome to Speech and Language at Clara Barton Elementary School
As the speech language pathologist serving your child's school, I would like to share some information with you about communication disorders. I would also like to tell you what we can do together if your child needs help with speech and language development.
The ability to communicate is perhaps the most important skill your child will acquire. Communication skills permit your children to make sense of their world, to express themselves and to learn. Because these skills are central to success in school, early identification of a problem is crucial. Once a child with a communication disorder is identified, the appropriate treatment and the involvement of parents often make the difference between failure or frustration in school and a successful school experience.
Just as a reminder, here is an overview of typical speech and language services:
If you have any concerns about your child's communication skills, please contact me at school. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to help your child develop better communication skills.
