This week we had the opportunity to hear and learn from Mrs. Tilma, our Speech & Language Pathologist. I know I learned from the presentation, and I hope you did too! There is so much more to SLP than just "speech." For instance, Mrs. Tilma explained that a lot of what she works on with the boys in our classroom deals with social skills. We have a group therapy session every Thursday that allows the boys to work together to get a more realistic social experiences.
One vague area is the difference between speech and language---yes, there is a difference! For part of your homework this week, you are going to delve in to this topic to learn the differences! Anyone interested in becoming a Speech Pathologist??
Have a great week and from Mrs. Bosch, thank you for an amazing experience these last couple of months! I will miss you guys!! Keep up the great work in all that you do :)
