Welcome to Speech!

September 2016

Welcome back to the 2016-17 school year!

I am looking forward to beginning my second year in Barnegat School District and at the Robert L. Horbelt School. I was glad to see many familiar faces in the hallway and on my caseload. I am anticipating a year of teamwork, working together with you and your child’s teacher towards your child’s speech goals. Student's classified as 'Speech Only,' who are working on articulation of speech will receive weekly homework. Please ensure that your child completes the homework at least once (or more!) before the next speech session. Homework consists of a quick activity and should not take more than a few minutes to complete. Homework encourages collaboration between home and school, carryover outside of the speech room and helps increase speech intelligibility. 
I am anticipating a successful year with your child!
