Speech and Language Services
Being a strong communicator is one of the most important skills that people need in order to be successful in all areas of life. Senpaq’cin is fortunate to have a strong speech and language program led by Holley Harfman. Students who require extra support in sound production or language communication skills are placed on a priority service model of intervention. Holly assesses, sets learning targets, and designs intervention programming for individual students. Mrs. Swift, our resident speech and language assistant, provides direct instruction and practice with students to help them meet the target goals as identified by our speech and language pathologist.
