SPEECH AND LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT:
Dear Parents and Guardians:Your children have been working hard during their speech sessions. They have continued to work on improving their ability to express themselves with improving grammar and vocabulary, as well as improve their listening comprehension. Others continue learning new methods to producing their sounds correctly.
I welcome your suggestions and input throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact me via email at email@example.com or through the main office (732)775-5319.
Thank you for your continued support!
Did you know that?
Many students with learning disabilities have weaknesses in Executive Functioning. Executive Functioning is the ability to organize and manage one thoughts, actions and emotions. These weaknesses can impair a student’s ability to pay attention in class, organize their schoolwork, begin or start a task, and regulate their emotions. As a parent, you can help your child with these skills at home by going through their backpacks on a weekly basis. Teach them to organize their school work, by throwing out papers and things that are not needed and keeping their important papers. Demonstrate how their backpack should look. Keep a visual schedule for what’s expected at home. A chart showing the time they do homework, eat dinner, watch TV or play a video game and time to get ready for bed. These schedules will help them to organize their time. A timer may also help them to regulate how long they spend on each task. They need structure at home, which in turn, will help to support and strengthen their executive functioning skills.HAPPY SPRING!
