About

Born and raised in Syracuse, New York, I moved to Knoxville in the midst of a pandemic! I received my professional eduction at the State University of New York College at Cortland. Clinically, I like to serve a diverse caseload, but have grown to love and feel confident treating phonological disorders and early language learners. During my free time I enjoy attending sporting events with my husband, trying new restaurants, and exercise classes.

Description

This course discusses systematic, effective ways to reduce speech sound errors within a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework. It provides strategies for deciding whether, and at what level, to enroll a child in speech treatment, and for supporting phonologic learning and monitoring progress in the general education setting. A successful three-tiered model of intervention at the elementary school level is also presented.
