Welcome to Speech,

    Language and Hearing!





    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    I hope all are well and healthy during these challenging times. By now you should have received a home packet from me, titled, Speech and Language Suggestions/Activities/Resources. In the packet, I’ve highlighted the section(s) that supports your child’s IEP (Individualize Educational Plan) goals. If you need a copy of your child’s IEP I can email it to you. During the week of March 23, I will be calling you to address any questions you may have, and to inform you of a plan to move us forward in continuing to support your child’s speech and language needs during this school closure. I’m currently editing this website to provide you with more resources. I hope to have it completed by April 1, so check back then. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me through email at jcampbell-cook@buffaloschools.org. Take care of yourself and each other!



    Mrs. J. Campbell-Cook, MA, TSHH

    Tips from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association


    In Early Grades K–2

    • Talk with your child a lot.
    • Read different types of books. Read every day, and talk with your child about the story.
    • Help your child learn sound patterns of words. You can play rhyming games and point out letters as you read.
    • Have your child retell stories and talk about his day.
    • Talk with your child about what you do during the day. Give her directions to follow.
    • Talk about how things are the same and different.
    • Give your child chances to write.

    In Later Grades 3-5

    • Keep your child reading. Find books and magazines that interest your child.
    • Ask your child what he thinks about what he hears or reads. Connect what he reads to events in his life.
    • Help your child connect what she reads and hears at school, home, and other events.
    • Talk out loud as you help your child read about and solve problems.
    • Help your child recognize spelling patterns. For example, point out the beginnings and endings of words, like "pre-" or "–ed."
    • Get your child to write letters, keep a diary, and write stories.
