Speech-Language Pathology Services at Wetmore Elementary

Speech-language therapy is available to children ages 3 through fifth grade who meet the eligibility criteria.  Therapy services, including language, articulation, stuttering and voice disorders, are provided during the school hours at the school.

For children, ages 3 to 5, who are not eligible for public school classes, an assessment may be requested by calling the school and setting up an appointment with the speech pathologist.

Parents may have more than speech concerns, but the assessment MUST begin at the home school with the speech pathologist. Appropriate referrals are made from the speech assessment. This process may begin 120 days prior to the child’s third birthday.

Children in kindergarten through fifth grades are usually referred by their teachers due to concerns in one or more of the areas previously mentioned.  A parent may also ask for an evaluation through the teacher or by contacting the speech pathologist directly.

There are also services for children Birth to Three.  The Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program is a combination of services for this age child who has delays or disorders.  These services are federally and state funded at no cost to the family.  Brighton School is the designated ECI site for Wetmore families.  Call them at  210-826-4492 for assessment information.

If your ECI age child is blind and/or deaf, contact the Special Education Department of North East Independent School District directly at 210-804-7200 for information.

If you have questions concerning speech-language services, please contact us at Wetmore (210- 407-8800).
