My name is Sue Doyle, and I am the Speech/Language Pathologist serving Meadowview Elementary School
Active, two-way communication begins at birth. As your child develops, we want them to be able to communicate their wants and needs effectively, and to carry on a conversation with others. Delays in speech or language development may have an affect on your child's social, behavioral, or academic skills. Early identification and treatment of speech/language delays will lessen the likelihood that these delays will continue or worsen. It is important that if you notice delays in your child's speech/language development that you contact a speech/language pathologist to talk about your concerns.
The American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association, or ASHA, is the professional organization that provides accreditation for speech/language pathologists. I have provided a link below that you may use to access additional information for parents.
