My Specialized Experience Includes:

Phonological Awareness

Treatment in phonological awareness, a vital skill for reading development.

Expressive Language Development

Instruction in vocabulary, grammar, sentence formulation, and word retrieval strategies.

Narrative Development

Analysis of how a student produces oral and written stories, and provide therapy based on the student’s individual needs. This skill develops oral expression and reading comprehension.
