My name is Nancy Jones, and I am a speech-language pathologist in the Yarmouth schools who works with students at Yarmouth Elementary School (grade 4), Harrison Middle School (grades 5-8) and Yarmouth High School (grade 9-11).  

Speech or language impairment means a 
communication disorder such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a 
language impairment, or a voice impairment, that adversely affects 
the child’s educational performance. [34 CFR 300.8(c)(11)]
