To provide a unique, whole-child approach to educating kids with learning differences, Julie Billiart Schools employee full-time Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) at all campuses. 

This onsite offering allows our educators to directly pinpoint needs and explore various techniques both in and out of the classroom. Therapists offer classroom support, small group instruction, and one-on-one therapy. Intervention specialists and therapists work together, with parents, to go above and beyond the IEP-directed needs of each child. 

JB Speech Therapists, who are certified by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, focus on improving pragmatic skills including social thinking, language, relationships, conflict management, and conversational, academic, and emotional communication. They work with students to evaluate, treat, and assist with:

  • Articulation and speech sound disorders 
  • Receptive and expressive language deficits 
  • Language learning deficits 
  • Augmentative and alternative communication 
  • Oral motor difficulties
  • Social/Pragmatic language deficits 

Kids might need speech-language therapy for many reasons, including:

  • Hearing impairments
  • Cognitive (intellectual, thinking) or other developmental delays
  • Underdeveloped oral muscles
  • Chronic hoarseness
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Autism
  • Motor planning problems
  • Articulation problems
  • Fluency disorders
  • Respiratory or breathing disorders
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders
  • Traumatic brain injury

The JB Speech-Language Team is dedicated to providing quality speech and language services that enable our children to become functional and independent communicators within our school community and beyond.

As with all of our onsite therapies, Julie Billiart Schools believe that parents play a critical role in the progress of their child’s speech-language development. Our therapists engage in frequent contact with parents to reinforce goals and activities in the home.
