I am a bilingual (Spanish) Speech-Language Pathologist and have practiced in a variety of settings for the past 24 years. My work history in the educational setting includes working with children PK through high school. Because I work with students who receive Special Education services, I like to focus on helping students communicate what they know and have learned, as well as strategies to facilitate understanding language. My products can be modified through a variety of means, which I hope will inspire creativity and provide some easy, yet useful, tasks to help students improve on their ability to follow directions, learn sequencing and expand on expressive and receptive language skills.
Learning has to be fun. I try to find materials that are highly acclaimed and make activities to support learning through them. My materials can be used as they are or can be modified by covering some of the visual options for students who may require a smaller field of choices (e.g., Fx2). Students can practice reading and writing words, phrases, sentences; identifying responses by pointing, or using AAC devices to make simple selections such as indicating when it is their turn, when their turn has ended, when they need help, etc. The use of my activities can be scaffolded according to a particular student's ability, and still enjoy learning vocabulary, writing, listening, sequencing, etc. through fun activities.

Because I am also a native Spanish speaker, if you have a request for me to create an activity that can be used to work with student's whose dominant language is Spanish, please contact me! I'm always interested in expanding my presentation of materials for students who come from bilingual backgrounds!
