Ms. Sarah Skrabal
Hello and welcome to the 2019-20 school year! My name is Sarah Skrabal and I am the new speech-language pathologist who will be working with your child this year. I will be providing speech services at Dickerson Elementary School and Black River Middle School. I look forward to seeing your child grow and improve their speech and language skills.
This is my first year at Chester School District and I am excited to join the community. I received my master’s degree from Kean University in Speech-Language Pathology and my undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh in Communication Science and Disorders. Prior to coming to Chester, I worked for two years at a private school for children with special needs. Also, I currently work at a private practice and provide speech and language services to children of all ages.
I am currently certified as a Speech-Language Specialist by the New Jersey State Department of Education, licensed as a Speech-Language Pathologist in the State of New Jersey, and hold a Certification of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
During the school year, I will send home various activities for your child to complete with you in order to practice good speech and language skills at home. These weekly assignments will reflect the skills we are working on in speech therapy. Please monitor your child as they practice and complete their assignments. Additionally, please initial any worksheets or notes in the folder which will let me know that you read the note and/or heard your child practice their assignments. The speech folder should then be sent in with your child on the day they attend speech.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Email is generally the quickest way to contact me during the school day. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can always send a note with your son/daughter if that is easiest.
I am looking forward to meeting you and working with your child. It is going to be a wonderful school year!
