• I love the beach and my grandbabies!   I am the  full-time Speech Language Pathologist at WPE.  I received my Master's Degree from Baylor University and have been working with children and adults with communication disorders for almost 40 years - Yikes!  I believe that for a speech therapy program to be successful, the carryover of speech goals must occur in both the classroom and the home.  Therefore, I am a big believer in speech homework.  Most parents can expect to see a homework folder coming back and forth with a few minutes of nightly activities.  I believe that one of the best things that you can do to build language skills is to read with your child.  Parents, I'm talking about YOU doing the reading.  Choose a classic children's book and read 10-20 minutes several evenings a week.  If you come to a word that your child does not know, look up the definition on your phone and talk about it. Ask questions about what you have read - - Not just who, what, where questions, but ones that make everyone think, ie, "What else could ___have said?", "Why did the character do/say that?", or "What do you think will happen next?"  Our great librarian will be happy to help you choose a book that the whole family will enjoy. Please call/email me if you have any questions.  Normally I will return most calls/emails within 24 hours.  It is going to be a great year!
