Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to another year of speech with me! A little about my background: I graduated from Kent State University with my masters, and from there I criss crossed across the country, working in schools, Birth-3 programs and as a private contractor. Before joining BISD, I worked for the Olympic Educational Service District, providing speech services, mostly to small school districts on the Olympic Peninsula.
This year I will be working primarily with Wilkes students- some in person and remote, as well as Blakely preschoolers. Zoom therapy has been very successful for most students, and this year will be even better with more resources being developed and my increased knowledge of things that work well (or don't- haha).
Check below here for some articulation suggestions!
Suggestions for working on articulation
1. Play "I Spy" game with things with the target sound (the ones we had been working on in therapy!)
2. Cut out pictures from magazines with target sounds, glue on paper. Play guessing game with pictures- "I'm thinking of something that hops" and take turns providing the clues/guessing.
3. Pick a food/dish to make together that has target sound, such as Jello for the "l" sound.
