What is Speech & Language Therapy? Speech Therapy helps kids who need it to work on
their communication skills so they are successful in school. Specific skills worked on include:
speaking clearly, listening with understanding, forming and using complete-grammatically correct sentences verbally. Other skills worked on in Speech Therapy include speech fluency (decreasing stuttering) and correct voice use when recommended by a family physician or ear-nose-throat doctor.
Here at Wolfle we also work with the Beginning Together Preschool sessions and the Wolfle Head Start Preschool, as well as the Intensive Support Program. We currently have two Speech Therapists on site: Molly Andersen and Stuart Wakefield. In all - we have about 60 students. Currently (September 2011) we have 57 students we are serving. We have 13 Preschoolers, 13 in the ISP program, and 31 students in grades K thru 5.
Most important - we work on communication skills in a fun atmosphere through learning activities and games. Often times students are sad to find out that they've completed our program!
