Welcome Back to Speech 2020!!   I pray that you and your family are staying safe and healthy.  We are working hard here at Minnie Ruffin to create a safe learning space for your children and our staff.    We are also working to create meaningful online experiences for our virtual students.  This school year is going to be very different for all of us, but together we can get through this safely!


Speech-language therapy services will continue for your student for either path your family chooses -face to face or virtual.  I will be contacting parents of virtual learners to set up therapy times as soon as possible.  In the meantime, I hope that you will enjoy the links provided to help your child practice their speech, language, and fluency skills.  Please also see the additional ideas provided in the Building Language pages.  As always, feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you may have.   


Check out these ideas below!   







Online Books:   wilbooks and YouTube 


Fun articulation and language games : 






Go on a virtual field trip or vacation with your family.  This is a great way for your child to build their vocabulary as you talk about all the things they see and experience.  Remember to encourage them to use complete sentences, produce thier target articulation sounds, and use their fluency strategies.  They could also write a few sentences about the experience.  Have a fun trip!
