Speech and Language Services at the Middle School are provided in a variety of settings based upon a
child's specific needs. In the Speech and Language Department, we pride ourselves on being flexible. We work with the student, teams, programs, and parents in order to integrate services
across the curriculum. Services are provided within the classroom
setting whenever possible, with us working in a wide variety of classes. Therapeutic, classes have also been created in order to

may also receive services outside of the classroom on an individual or
small group based upon need.

Therapeutic Class Information
Each year the specialized classes offered change based upon the
students and their needs. The Language Concepts classes are taught by Kara Mowry and myself. This curriculum mixes Language Arts and Social Studies concepts together in a language rich environment. The classes evolve based upon the changing curriculum and the IEP needs of the students within the classes. They provide a unique opportunity to weave language and literacy goals with Social Studies concepts. Social skill development and technology are also integrated within the classroom.
