Mrs. Sczudlo's Speech and Language Spot

  • Welcome to Speech and Language Therapy

    Hello, and welcome to my web site. I hope this site provides you with information regarding the speech and language program at John Kennedy Intermediate School.

    Speech and Language therapy is provided to students in a variety of ways at John Kennedy School. How services are provided changes each year depending on the needs of the students and the classroom teachers. Listening skills, articulation skills and language skills have an impact on a student's success in the classroom. Students experiencing difficulty in any of these areas can be provided with small group instruction to address their specific needs. Specific criteria by the district therapists are used to determine eligibility for services. 

     Several different programs are available to students here at John Kennedy School.  This year the district is using The Five Minute Kids program to address articulation delays. Students enrolled in this program receive individual articulation therapy rather then traditional small group pull out. Language Enrichment Program addresses the needs of students who need extra support in receptive and expressive language. This program is a pull out therapy model and students receive instruction in small groups outside their classroom. I am excited about the success of the students in this program.
