I am a Speech Therapist for kindergarten kids. Most of my students have some difficulty developing and producing speech to tell us what they want or need or engage with staff and friends, however, they do have a LIMITLESS desire and potential to do so with the correct support. I love walking into class and seeing my kids working to gain skills and become more independent in everything that they do. I am constantly inspired by the patience and persistence of our staff and kids. The printer and laminator requested will be used to make pictures that my students can use to learn new concepts and express their wants and needs. As a consequence, we’ll begin to teach them to tell the world what they need, and to develop their communication skills by using pictures to represent the items they need. Communication is everything to a child with complex needs.
