Working with a student

Overview

As humans we are social beings. As social beings we communicate. We communicate to share knowledge, to share ideas, to interact and to tell stories.

Language is our means of connecting with one another; our means of sharing commonality and diversity; our means of linking present and past; our means of creating well-being; our means of developing as a species. We communicate in so many ways: orally, with gesture, and in writing.  

For those with communication delays or differences, it is frustrating for both sender and receiver. Through my work as a speech language pathologist I hope to minimize these frustrations - to think of creative ways to help others effectively communicate their needs and wants. My professional goal is to provide support for those gaining communicative competence and confidence toward well-being and productive citizenship.
