Student Support

Language Support 

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) work closely with teachers to develop approaches to curriculum that allow students with language-based learning disabilities to be successful. They promote skill development and use of strategies that further students’ listening, understanding, speaking, and writing. Most of the SLP’s work takes place in the context of the classrooms and in small groups with students. 

Literacy Support 

The Literacy Program offers students more intensive work in the areas of decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) as needed. Literacy Specialists use a variety of programs and techniques to strengthen phonemic awareness and phonics, develop symbol imagery, and increase automaticity and fluency. 

Assistive Technology Support 

Assistive Technology, such as text-to-speech software, is used to support students’ language, reading, and writing skills. Assistive Technology Specialists evaluate, train, and teach students to implement these tools in the classroom. The technology gives the students access to content at or above their grade level, which may be higher than their decoding level. Technology assistance for written expression gives students more freedom to express themselves along with support for identifying and correcting errors in their writing. 

Math Support 

The Math Specialists consult with teachers to plan their math classes, offering content differentiation and pacing recommendations. Additionally, the Math Specialists teach small groups. 

School Psychologist

The School Psychologist/Counselor consults with students, faculty/staff, administration, and parents to track and support students’ educational and social-emotional needs. They review learning profiles and maintain a broad perspective on interventions, accommodations, and modifications for students. They do not provide individual or family therapy, but can make referrals to the community for such services.

Our Occupational Therapist (OT) consultant works with teachers on a regular basis to recommend tools and strategies to maximize student engagement.
