I look forward to working with your child and helping him/her achieve their highest level of educational potential.

As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I help students with disorders of language, literacy, articulation, fluency, and voice to achieve academic goals. This includes the prevention, assessment, intervention, and development of individualized programs that are designed to be integrated within our school.  By utilizing the natural environment as an intervention context, communication goals are often combined with academic and social goals to facilitate communicative competence and maximize student learning.
