Speech & Language

Speech and language therapists serve students whose speech and/or language processes are not in the range of typical development, and/or may interfere with educational and social development.

Students with language, articulation, voice and fluency deviations may be eligible for services.

Speech and language services are available which address the communication, articulation, language, voice, and fluency of students when there is an adverse affect on educational performance. Parents who have concerns regarding their child’s speech and language development may contact their classroom teacher or the school speech and language pathologist. The pathologist will observe and, if appropriate, screen or administer additional assessments. If a need is present, speech and/or language therapy will be offered to the student.

Parents of preschool children, ages 3-5, who have speech concerns should contact the special services office at 847-566-0169 ext. 4001. If an assessment or services are indicated services will be provided either.
