WCESC SLP Department is happy to announce two new additions to the SLP family! Allison Espinoza and Colleen Easton have recently been hired to provide speech-language services to students receiving virtual therapy through OHDELA. Allison and Colleen are experienced therapists and each is a great asset to our organization. The SLP Department has grown by five this school year to a total of 31 SLPs! Welcome Allison and Colleen!
Karen Crabb, SLP serving students at the Warren County Learning Center has been invited to speak to Speech-Language Pathology students at Harding University. Harding University is located in Searcy, Arkansas and is alma mater to two of our SLPs- Karen, and Jean Linton. In addition, Karen’s daughter currently attends Harding and is studying to become a Speech-Language Pathologist. This is the second collegiate speaking opportunity for Karen. She will be speaking to undergraduates about her experiences working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, including assessment and therapeutic approaches. Karen plans to discuss her experiences using Executive Function strategies, Get Ready/Do/Done, 5-Point Scale, Zones of Regulation, Theory of Mind, Story Retell with discussion of internal responses of thinking and feeling, Social Thinking, and Cartooning for Perspective-Taking. She will also highlight the Interoception/Language classes that she co-teaches with Catherine Nichols, OT, at Warren County Learning Center. Congratulations, Karen! Best of luck!
