Speech & Language

@ Seward

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

Hello and thanks for stopping by! It is truly an honor to be here at Seward, helping students learn to communicate more clearly. As a speech-language pathologist (SLP), I get to work with students who have a wide range of communication needs. This includes helping students articulate specific speech sounds; teaching stuttering management and fluency-enhancing techniques to kids who stutter; facilitating social communication skills in students with autism spectrum disorder or developmental disabilities; and improving kids' abilities to use and understand language to communicate more effectively with others and achieve success with language-based schoolwork. Every student I work with has a unique set of needs and circumstances and I love creating custom lessons for each student or small group that are accessible, enjoyable, and maximally effective.

Besides speech therapy, my other interests include hiking, paddling, improv, and traveling! I am an enthusiastic alumna of Lawrence University in Appleton, WI (where I majored in Linguistics), and graduate of the University of Minnesota's master's program in Speech-Language Pathology.

This site is designed to provide contact information and resources for you. If there is anything else you need, please don't hesitate to reach out by phone at 612 460-8149, or email at paige.whitney@mpls.k12.mn.us. The best time for a chat is during my office hours, which are 7:30-8:00am Mon/Thur/Fri, and from 1:30-2:00 on Tu/Wed.

Sincerely,

Paige Whitney, M.A., CCC-SLP
