- About Us
Sandy Paddick, Treena Anand, Jennifer Schulmeister and Cara Landreth, speech language pathologists, lead the language enrichment program in 9 elementary schools in Northern Alberta. This program specifically targets students who are identified as FNMI (First Nation, Metis, Inuit). The speech-language pathologists work with teachers to modify classroom activities to help students learn curriculum successfully. The program is delivered through classroom demonstrations, teacher workshop and parent workshops. It is the least intrusive way to provide an enriched program for children who are at risk for delays in language and literacy skills.
Our goal is to reach more parents, so that they are active participants in their child's educational program. This school year we had the highest parent turnout, and we are hopeful that parents will continue to engage with teachers and speech-language pathologists.
This spring the speech-language pathologists will provide the final round of teacher workshops and classroom demonstrations.
