Communication skills are central to a student’s educational experience and academic success, and the speech/language therapy program at Miriam School plays an integral role in the daily learning experiences of the students it serves.
Three state-licensed ASHA-certified speech/language pathologists work with students identified with speech/language disorders. Each student’s strengths and needs are identified, and an individualized treatment plan is developed as part of the IEP process. Therapy services are provided to individuals and small groups, as well as through classroom-based programs and consultation services. In keeping with the team approach, the speech/language pathologists work closely with the classroom teachers to facilitate the use of effective communication skills throughout the student’s day.
The goal of the speech/language therapy program at Miriam School is to improve students’ communication skills so they may be successful throughout their school day and in social experiences outside of school.
