Welcome to Speech and Language Services

  • Welcome to Speech and Language Services in the Middle School. My name is Faye Neuman- Zharnest and I am a licensed, certified speech and language pathologist in the state of New Jersey. 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 fneumanzharnest@tenafly.k12.nj.us 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!


    In view of the current situation, speech and language services are taking place virtually using Google Meets since the Department of Education lifted the ban on doing so earlier this month.  I have had live sessions with most of my students and it is so great to see each of them.  Each student receiving speech or language services also has a speech google classroom.  It is being used to post links to the speech google meets and to post activities for students related to their specific speech and language needs.  If you have any questions about this, please reach out to me.

    Thank you and best wishes to each of your families!
