Better Speech and Hearing Month
The month of May is nationally recognized as Better Speech and Hearing Month! This year’s theme is Communication: The Key to Connection. The Speech-Language Therapy Department at Monett R-1 School District firmly believes that communication is the key to making connections within the classroom and the community.
The Monett R-1 School District has a growing Speech-Language Therapy Department with five licensed Speech Language Pathologists: Judy Seawel, Carrie Zahn, Suzanne Sloan, Morgan Hastings, and Elizabeth Stotlemeyer. The department currently serves over 250 students district wide.
The services provided through speech and language therapy by our SLP staff are an asset to our district as well as our community. The benefits of speech and language intervention for our students with speech and/or language impairments help them make stronger connections both academically and socially.
The goal of our department is to facilitate the emergence of well-spoken, articulate members of society. It is our mission for the students of the Monett School District to enter higher academic arenas or areas of chosen work ready to meet daily challenges and live a fulfilled, productive life.
The Speech-Language Pathology Department is privileged to celebrate throughout the month of May by helping teachers promote better speech and language skills within the classroom. As a department, we would like to thank teachers and administrators for their continued support and collaboration in helping students make the connections necessary to reach their full potential.
If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding your child's speech and language development, please feel free to contact any of the Speech Pathologists at their school sites listed, or you may contact the Monett R-1 Special Services office. If the SLP is unable to speak to you at the time of your call, please leave a message and she will get back with you as soon as possible. We look forward to serving the children and parents of the Monett Schools and welcome your questions and input.
