"I was glad that writing was emphasized. It is a form of communication and is often ignored by speech therapists. They should be the ones helping children who have difficulty in language learning. I like the idea of using graphic organizers." C.D. (June 2021)
“The specific examples of implementing language therapy in the classroom were helpful.” – E.C. (Feb. 2021)
