Hi, my name is Darcy and I have been a speech/language pathologist in the public school for nine years. I have worked with students ranging from 2-22 years of age on expressive and receptive language skills, phonology, articulation, grammar, writing, vocabulary, reading skills, and social skills. I have worked with a variety of populations, including students who are deaf and hard-of hearing and I'm fluent in ASL. I enjoy working with children and would be happy to tutor your child.
I have worked with elementary, middle, and high school students on grammar skills including plurals, possessives, verb tenses, and subject-verb agreement.
I attended Gallaudet University where I took ASL classes through both the university and through my department. After graduating I spent four year teaching deaf and hard of hearing students in the public school using ASL and cued speech.
I have worked in the public schools as a speech/language pathologist where I work on phonics with students while working on their articulation skills. I teach children about letter names vs letter sounds, word families, and rhyming to develop their articulation as well as reading skills. I have also administered the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) to my preschool students.
I have worked with elementary through high school students on developing reading skills. This has included beginner skills such as sounding out words and phonemic awareness, to more advanced skills like defining vocabulary through context clues and reading comprehension in paragraphs.
I attended grad school at Gallaudet University where I took three levels of ASL, as well as two classes involving signing related to speech/language pathology. After graduating, I was a speech pathologist in the public school for students who were deaf or hard-of -hearing where I taught students orally or through ASL or cued speech.
I am a speech therapist in the public school where I have worked with students from ages 2-22. These include students who are deaf and hard of hearing, who have learning disabilities, Down Syndrome, Aspergers, and Autism. I have taught students who are both verbal and nonverbal.
