SUBJECT: Speech and Language

GRADE: Elementary

 

Hello and welcome to my web page.  My name is Sheri Acre.  I teach speech and language support for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at the Punxsutawney Area Elementary School.  I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama and went on to earn my master's degree in Speech/Language Pathology from Clarion University.
 
SLP's have many roles in the school setting. The following are a few examples of different tasks a SLP may encounter throughout a typical day:
  • Prevention and treatment of communication disorders
  • Assessment of students' communication skills
  • Identification of students at risk for later problems
  • Development and implementation of IEP's
  • Documentation of outcomes from treatment or therapy
  • Collaboration with teachers and other professionals
  • Advocacy for teaching practices
  • Participation in school-wide curriculum
