The Speech and Language Program serves children with communication disorders that adversely affect their education. Poor communication skills can interfere with a student’s ability to understand and participate in classroom instruction and may impair their relationships with teachers and other children. Good communication is important for speaking, thinking, writing, reading and learning. The LSS speech-language pathologists provide support for students grades 3-5 in areas of communication disorders.
