The speech therapist serves children with articulation, language, fluency, and voice disorders. Children with these problems who are impacted in the classroom socially and/or academically are sent to the Student Support Team. If the team recommends an evaluation, then the therapist provides the testing and then meets with the parents. An educational plan may be written. Once therapy begins, it is important for the children to practice at home to improve progress. A speech folder is provided with activities to practice.
Occupational therapy services are provided for students at Salem Elementary who have been identified as being able to benefit from special education and also as having functional needs that might reduce their opportunity for success in the educational setting. OT helps students adapt to the educational setting to maximize the benefit of special education.
