Welcome to Speech and Language Services
Welcome to Speech and Language Services in the Middle School. My name is Faye Zharnest and I am a licensed, certified speech and language pathologist in the state of New Jersey. Here in the Middle School, I am known as a "Speech Language Specialist" and I evaluate and work with students who have speech or language difficulties. The speech classroom this year is located upstairs in room 217A and I am in this building five days a week. I am available to students during their weekly speech and language sessions, and also in the mornings and afternoons if a student needs my help with a school related assignment such as an oral presentation.
Speech and Language therapy services are conducted generally within a small group setting on a pullout basis, but also sometimes as a service provided in the general classroom setting. If your child is scheduled for a speech and/or language session, he or she will be made aware of his or her schedule early in the school year..
Should you have questions about speech and language services, I can be reached either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at 201 816-4965. I look forward to connecting with you and telling you more about the speech and language program in the Middle School!
Best wishes for an enjoyable and productive school year.ScheduleSpeech language therapy sessions are scheduled throughout the week and are provided in various ways depending on a student's individual needs. Some students do receive traditional pull out speech and language services while other students are serviced within the mainstream classroom setting. In order for a student to receive speech or language services within the Middle School, their difficulties with speech or language skills need to impact on their classroom and academic performance. Once a student does qualify for this service, his or her schedule is established.
