DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION
Hello Parents. Thank you for visiting my website. I am Denise Matthews and I am the Speech/Language Pathologist at Columbia Elementary School. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with your children this school year. I hope this site is helpful, as we try together, to determine, and provide the best distance learning plan for your child and your family.
I invite you to explore all of the different areas of this using using the navigation bar at the left side of the page. Whether your child is working on their speech (articulation) skills, language skills, improving their vocal quality or fluency, you will find lots of information and links to useful resources for helping your child learn and maintain his/her skills.
It is very important to me that you understand that I do not want you to feel like your child's Speech/Language Pathologist at this time. My goal during this time is to help you feel empowered and comfortable working with your child towards maintaining their current speech and language skills.
I will not be asking you to teach your child any new speech or langauge skills that we have not addressed together. I will provide each of you information about which goal or goals are most appropraite for you to be practicing at home.
We will work together to determine what type of distance learning plan will be most appropriate for you, your child and your family. Thank you for your patience during this process as we are all navaigating unchartered waters.
PLEASE TELL YOUR CHILD I MISS THEM SO MUCH!!
