Distance Learning for Speech and Language Students
This page is to help maintain and support your child's speech and language skills during this distance learning period. Included on this page are general ideas/suggestions to help with your child's speech and language needs, as well as activities to complete. Please refer to your child's speech and language IEP goals or Articulation Therapy Plan to familiarize yourself with what your child is working on in speech therapy. Your child should also be able to tell you what goal area they are working on as we write it down every speech session. If you have a specific question about what your child is working on or what activity to complete, please don't hesitate to contact me.
