Hello! Welcome to the Speech-Language Pathology Department! Northwood School has two Speech-Language Pathologists, Kelly Brown and Cathy Caron.

We work with many students in the school including those who:

are late acquiring speech or language

have a stutterer that interferes with his/her ability to speak in class

are a grade level (or more) behind in his/her ability to read aloud or understand the content of what is read

struggle to make and maintain friendships as a result of a social pragmatic disorder

have difficulty pronouncing certain sounds

have difficulty understanding language

have difficulty with grammar or sentence formulation

cannot speak and need to learn to use a form of Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC)

have a reading disability

In addition to working with students who have an Individualized Education Plan, we also frequently go into classrooms to help whole groups of children improve their communication, language, reading, writing, and social skills.
