Meet the Speech Therapist!Hello Parents/Guardians!
I’m Ms. Collevechio, “Ms. C.” and this is my 4th year at Tamaqua Elementary as a school speech therapist. The best thing about being a speech therapist is helping my students communicate more easily with their friends and teachers within the school environment, and improve their speech/language skills with which they may be struggling. I am really excited about working with your child this year! I am a native of Summit Hill and a recent graduate of La Salle University in Philadelphia, where I received my Master’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders.
In order to ensure appropriate carry-over of speech/language skills outside of the therapy room, I do send homework activities home to be completed with a parent/guardian. These homework assignments are NOT GRADED. They are extra activities for practice that should be completed outside of the speech therapy room with an adult in order to increase the progression of skills.
Communication with one-another is a key component to progression in therapy. I am available via email if you wish to speak, so please contact me with any questions or concerns.
During this time of extended school closure due the COVID-19 pandemic, please reference this district website page for information, videos, and activities related to your child's speech/language goal(s) that can be completed at home. I will be posting information to this website page, as well as a Google Classroom I am creating for my speech students. If your child has a school Google account, please have them log in and use the Google Classroom code I will provide soon.
I know this is a difficult time for all of us, but we can get through it together! As always, I am available via email to contact with any questions or concerns.
Thank you! Stay safe and healthy! :)
Katelyn Collevechio M.S., CCC-SLP
