Welcome to Mrs. Meixner's Website!





Did you know?

   *42 million people in the U.S. suffer from speech,voice, language, or hearing impairments

   *approximately 10 % of children have moderate to severe communication impairments, including speech production/articulation, stuttering, and language-learning difficulties

   *children with speech and language impairments are 4 to 5 times more likely than their peers to experience other language-learning disabilities to include significant reading problems

   *speech and language disorders can limit academic achievement, social adjustment, and career advancement
              

If you are concerned about your child's speech/language development, please talk to your child's teacher at school. The teacher will be encouraged to try different intervention strategies with your child.  If no progress is noted, the teacher/parents may refer the child to the speech-language pathologist for an evaluation.  After all assessments are completed the team will discuss the results of testing at an IEP meeting and determine if the child needs services. 




Helen Keller once noted that of all her impairments, she was perhaps troubled most by her lack of speech and hearing.  She elaborated, that while blindness separated her from things, her lack of speech and hearing separated her from people -- the human connection of communication.
