A new school year has started so be on the look-out for new resources and links being added to this site in the days and weeks ahead!  This year Mrs. Alexa Schwalenberg and Kristen Bryson will be your child's speech therapists at Sixth Ward five days a week. 

The Start of the School Year:

We start speech and language therapy at school by first meeting each child on our rosters and then taking some baseline data.  We will collect data over the next few weeks and use it to assess progress throughout the year.  Baseline data is also used to determine the best group/time for therapy for your son/daughter.  Therapy times and groups will be finalized over the next few weeks.  However remember therapy times may change as your child progresses.  

During the school year we will send home various activities for your child to complete in order to practice good speech and language skills.  Please help your child complete these activities and return them to school in your child's classroom homework folder.

Please feel free to contact us any time you have questions or concerns.  We check our email daily and you can send a note that way either to Mrs. Bryson at or to Mrs. Shwalenberg at  You can also call the school main number at 985-863-7126 during school hours You can also always send a note addressed to us in your child's folder.We can't wait to work with your children this year!
