Therapy & Related Services
Instructor: Diane Driggers   
Our school system has several supportive services for our students, which might include the following services:

Speech therapy activities
Physical Therapy
Occupational Therapy

Speech therapy helps with various communication needs, along with learning appropriate ways to socialize with peers and adults.  Some problem areas that students might work on include:
Articulation skills--when showing difficulty with producing sounds in syllables or words
Fluency skills--when experiencing stuttering, where the flow of speech gets interrupted, sometimes through  repetitions or prolonging of sounds and syllables
Resonance or voice skills--might be seen as problems with pitch, volume, or quality of a person's voice toward a listener, which sometimes causes pain or discomfort to the speaker
Dysphagia/oral feeding skills--which might include difficulties with chewing food or swallowing mechanisms

Language skills-- receptive skills, including understanding or processing language; expressive skills, including difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way

Physical Therapy helps students to strengthen large muscle groups, while maintaining endurance and good muscle tone.
Occupational Therapy assists students with learning independent life skills, and creating solutions to assist students with obtaining positive outcomes.
