Rosslyn Delmonico, MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP
Rosslyn Delmonico, MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP, has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 35 years both within the private and public school systems, and has had her own private practice since 1991. Through her years of experience, she has worked almost exclusively with school-age children, with her main focus of interest being on those with language impairments.
Rosslyn saw a need for a connected and comprehensive social language program, one which would take language-impaired children from a basic greeting to the most complex conversation that they were capable of having. In 2006, she started developing a speech-language therapy tool for children within her caseload called Color My Conversation. Since that time, it has continued to emerge as a social language based program applicable for both special needs and general education children.
Rosslyn discovered that her best teaching practices developed over her years of experience included movement, color, song, and hands on learning. If the children were having fun, they were engaged. When they were engaged, they were learning! Her multisensory approach to teaching has proven to be highly effective with her students. Rosslyn's personal philosophy is that all children are special, can learn, and have something to give the world through their unique personalities.
