Speech and language difficulties often make it difficult for a child to learn in school. The Speech-Language Pathologists are available to assess and treat so every child that qualifies for services can succeed. 

The Speech-Language Department can help a child with speech sound disorders, language and literacy, social communication, cognitive communication, stuttering and voice.

A child needs language skills to communicate and needs to communicate to learn. Reading, writing, listening, speaking and gesturing are all forms of language. 

“The better your communication skills are the better you will do in school” (ASHA, 2022). 

If you are concerned or have questions about your child’s speech and language, contact Kate Tucker, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech/Language Dept. Referral Coordinator, at 662-286-5245 or
