SULA 322 provides mandated speech therapy services for children in the school. Our speech department works together with students, teachers, and administrators in and out of the classroom to make sure that each child on their caseload is provided with the tools and skills necessary to succeed academically. In conjunction with other educators, they develop individualized education plans (IEPs) that best serve each student’s individualized speech and language needs so that they may access the curriculum. Students’ goals range from increasing reading comprehension, improving writing abilities, acquisition of grade level vocabulary, improving sound and word production, increasing classroom participation and social skills, and implementing organizational strategies for academic purposes. Students learn a variety of strategies during speech sessions that they carry over into their classwork and homework. Our speech therapists love working with the students and staff from M322!
