SpeechMrs. Chelsie Chaney
I provide speech and language services to students preschool (age 3) to 6th grade here at Jefferson School. Children are referred by their teacher or parent. I then screen the child’s speech or language skills to determine if a full evaluation is needed. Sometimes our teachers will have me listen to their students read and I can determine whether a student needs to be formally screened and/or evaluated. Once evaluated, a meeting will take place to determine if the student is eligible for services and then an Individual Educational Plan will be put into place to set the goals for therapy. Other areas also targeted can include Vocabulary, Grammar/Syntax, Auditory Processing, Voice and Fluency.
Preschool children can be referred through our Preschool Screening two times per year or a parent can call and request that their child’s speech and language skills be screened.
