    Hello everyone.  My name is Mrs. Tamasy and I am the speech/language pathologist (SLP) for both Marion Elementary and Belle Vernon Area Middle School.  A child can be referred for a speech/language screening either by a classroom teacher or parent.  They may also be identified as needing services through early intervention or at the kindergarten screening.  After the screening, further testing may be warranted.  If a child qualifies for speech/language support services, parents will be contacted and invited to an IEP meeting.  An IEP will be written and specific goals created to work on throughout the year.  Possible goals would include working to improve articulation skills, language development, fluency and pragmatic skills.  If you suspect that your child has a speech/language disability, and would like to have him/her screened, please notify me.  Each child is unique and develops differently.  We can all work together to make sure they are reaching their maximum potential.
