Occupational and Speech Therapy
Our speech therapists consult with the classroom teachers regularly to help create a stimulating speech and language environment. Students’ communication IEP goals are supported throughout the day with special attention during activities such as cooking, snack, centers, small groups, large group, literacy, community based instruction and field trips. Webster is committed to the best practices approach of serving students in natural settings to build their functional communication skills.
Augmentative/Alternative communication (AAC) is strongly supported throughout the program to provide students different ways to express themselves with peers and staff. Pictures, visual schedules, core vocabulary picture boards and voice output devices paired with basic manual signs are embedded into the daily curriculum at Webster Elementary.
We have two speech therapists at our school that support our program, both with extensive knowledge and experience working with a variety of students.
