About Speech Language

Children who are eligible for speech or language therapy may have difficulties with articulation (how they produce their speech sounds), receptive and expressive language (how they understand and verbally express thoughts and ideas), voice (sound quality, pitch, resonance, and volume), or fluency (sometimes called stuttering). Speech/language therapists provide services to children in all schools within the district.

  • Students speech and hearing is screened again in 1st, 3rd and 5th grade.
