SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY
Where we improve our articulation and language skills...........
MRS. SHARON ZEMAN, CCC-SLP
I am looking forward to working with all my students this school year. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer.
In speech therapy, students work on improving their articulation skills, which are their ability to correctly produce speech sounds. In addition, some children work on strengthening their oral motors skills, including jaw stability, lip rounding and tongue strengthening.
Language therapy involves improving childrens' receptive and expressive language skills. Receptive language is a child's ability to understand language including correctly following directions and responding to questions. Expressive language is a child's ability to use language to verbally express their needs and ideas.
Some of my students work on improving their pragmatic language skills, which are their ability to appropriately use social greetings and initiate as well as maintain conversations.
