The goal of the Speech Department at Heartland Christian School is to identify and provide services for children who are in need of development of their speech and language skills. All kindergarten and first grade students and students who are new to the school are screened to determine if there is a need for further evaluation. With the parent’s permission, a student is evaluated and services are provided.
Therapy is provided in the areas of sound awareness and sound production, language comprehension, expressive language, and fluency. Some of the students who receive services are on service plans or IEP’s, but this is not a requirement for a student to receive speech/language services. Services are provided during school hours, and teachers are consulted when determining a child’s therapy time.
