Between the two of us (Teresa and Anita) we share 74+ years as Speech Language Pathologists in the public school system. Our students have ranged from age 3 months to 21 years. Our students' needs have ranged from common articulation delays to severe autism spectrum disorders and mental disabilities. We have addressed needs of students that are verbal, as well as those that are nonverbal. We have utilized methods including pull-out, push-in, classroom collaboration, and whole class instruction.
We both truly love our profession and attempt to bring that excitement to our students by demonstrating our own excitement and engagement in lessons. We believe that "what you put in, is what you get out." We believe that you should celebrate your students' great successes, and more importantly, you should celebrate the smallest successes; as for many of our students the small successes are the ones that are most difficult to achieve. We also believe that, inherent in any goals, a primary objective should be to have our students accept and embrace their own personal responsibility for applying the skills we have helped them acquire.
