Speech and LanguageThe Speech and Language Impaired Program at Mt. Herman is designed to improve a student’s functional communication skills. Our program serves eligible students who have communication deficiencies in understanding or producing language. Eligible students receive group and/or individual therapy, including consultation with parents and classroom teachers. Alternative communication devices are a means for students who are not able to use speech or have limited speech, to communicate with others. By using these devices, students are able to communicate their wants and needs, respond to questions and manipulate their environment at their individual ability level. These devices may include computers, various switches, electronic communication boards, eye gaze communicator or picture object communication books.
