Speech and Language

Meet Mrs. Brown

Communication is the process of exchanging information and ideas through verbal and nonverbal means and involves both a
speaker and a listener. Our role at the Kennedy School is to remediate communication problems within the educational environment. This
requires the identification, assessment, evaluation and the planning of intervention for students with speech,
language and related impairments and disabilities.

Intervention strategies reflect a student's changing developmental and language needs and are consistent with
current research and practice. The speech and language profession is dynamic and evolving. New areas of intervention
are considered if they are based on valid and reliable scientific research and technological developments.
