Effectively building communication skills with visuals and strategies! Over 35 years as an SLP in the schools has convinced me of their value for special needs and at risk learners. Get more success with less stress!
Learning and communication occur best in an environment of mutual respect and enjoyment. Using pictures, visuals and strategies aids all learning and leads to more success when teaching students with disabilities!
Awards and certificates come and go, but those treasured moments.... a child saying her name clearly for the first time... the boy who asks with words instead of tantrums ... the teacher who said I made a difference for her... the mom who cried because she was so happy... Those are the moments I cherish.
B.A. , M.A. in speech/language pathology and post-graduate studies in the areas of reading, education, autism, and social language problems.
A speech/language pathologist living in New York, I am so happy to be sharing what has worked for me! My experience include students with autism, hearing impaired students, preschool students with a variety of disabling conditions, students with language/learning disabilities who were mainstreamed and students with emotional/behavioral needs requiring special programs. We work hard and I'd be happy to help make your life easier!
