Greetings From Helen

Speech, Language and Educational Associates’ mission has been as follows:

A multidisciplinary team of educators and therapists working together with families to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs, using systematic and innovative strategies and programs to develop strong understanding, speaking, reading and writing skills.

The long-awaited passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in December 2015 replaces the No Child Left Behind Act. ESSA returns much authority and decision-making on student testing and accountability for student progress to states and local schools districts.

ASHA advocated for the literacy and professional development policies as well as for two additional provisions included in ESSA: expanded early intervening services and replacement of “pupil services personnel” term with “specialized instructional support personnel” for the category of professionals that include audiologists and SLPs. Early intervention services will continue to be funded, as well as the use of SLPs and audiologists to “support, develop and evaluate literacy instruction.”

We at SLEA are proud to say that we have been in forefront of incorporating Child Development Specialists and Speech-Language Pathologists in our delivery of early intervention services. We have also been in the forefront of incorporating SLPs in the integration and teaching of understanding, speaking, reading and writing. We have and continue to address how speech-language pathologists can be an integral part of teaching individuals to read and write. SLEA is able to diagnose and treat understanding, speaking, reading and writing.

We are very proud of our staff.

Best,

Helen

Shellie’s Strategies and Support

Here are a few great resources for teaching social skills!  The first is an article that discusses the recent popular movie “Inside Out” and how we can help our clients to learn from the mistakes made by Riley’s feelings.  The second resource is a practical guide that reviews lots of strategies and resources for teaching social skills.

The internet has given us the ability to access a flood of valuable resources and therapy activities – all for free! First is a link about early childhood development. The tip sheets are great to give to families and are available in English and in Spanish! On this link you will find downloadable resources and you can even order free materials.

This is a timely post from ASHA about using the Presidential Debates to Teach Social Language Concepts.

Thank you to all of our creative and knowledgeable professionals in the field who have sent me these wonderful therapy tools!

Happy March Birthdays!
