We will welcome Ms. Indra Kreismanis back the school in 2022 as a Speech Pathologist. Indra will work for one day a week supporting our Education Support (ES) Staff. All of our staff have received training in the Speech Therapy Assistant program. This program is designed to support all Tier 3 and Tier 2 children requiring intervention or additional support.
Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a speech pathologist.
