Mrs. Zickefoose, Speech Therapist
Communication is a powerful tool used in our everyday lives. The ability to
communicate is essential to academic achievement. Children with speech and/or
language disorders can have difficulty with learning and social growth.
Therefore, the speech/language program at WHES provides evaluation of children
referred for articulation, language, voice, fluency, and hearing concerns.
Children are found eligible for services if difficulty in one or more of these
areas impacts a child educationally. The Speech Pathologist provides the
services as recommended by the IEP committee. Therapy is provided in the school
setting during the school day. Services target improving communication skills
necessary for academic achievement.
