It has been my pleasure to serve the students of Valley View Schools for the past 24 years. I will be working with the 3 to 5 year old Preschoolers who attend our 1/2 day classes, 4 days per week. My job is to assess, diagnose, and do therapy with students whose speech and language difficulties make it difficult for them to access our preschool curriculum. I also provide interventions for our typically developing preschoolers when the teachers think some extra help is needed with their speech/language skills. All of our preschoolers participate in a weekly language/literacy lesson that can be part of their therapy, interventions and/or enrichment. But they all think they are just having fun!!
