Something To Talk About
Gretchen M. Denton, MA, CCC-SLP
Speech/Language Pathologists (SLP) work with individuals of all ages with difficulties in the areas of speech production, language use and understanding, hearing impairments, voice disorders, motor speech disorders, social language impairments , and speaking fluency. School-based SLPs help to support children whose speech or language difficulties interfere with their learning and overall performance within the regular classroom. This support may come in many forms–observing the student within the classroom and consulting with the teacher, direct services provided within the classroom setting, periodic monitoring, co-teaching with regular or special education teachers, or regular direct services to address specific skills. Some children benefit from a combination of these service types, as well. If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding you child’s speech and/or language skills, please feel free to talk to your child’s teacher, or contact me:
