My name is Page Kirby and I have been working as an Educational Sign Language Interpreter for over 6 years now. I received my degree at Western Nevada College in Carson City. Currently I am on assignment in Fernley, Nevada, which is about an hour north of where I originally grew up, Gardnerville.

My name is Cara Glodowski and it's hard to believe, but this is my 26th year in practice as a Speech Language Pathologist. I grew up in Connecticut but I have been living in the Midwest for the past 30 years, even though I will always be a beach girl at heart. I received my master’s degree here at the University of Kansas. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Most recently I worked a teletherapy assignment in California. It was fun to work in a different time zone and place, without leaving home.

Children of all ages within schools receive speech and language therapy. Some are not native English speakers, others need assistance with articulation, and some may have pragmatic needs due to an autism diagnosis. Each individual has different needs for their therapy sessions. It is important to look at the goals for each child and set up ways to actively engage them when they are with you for therapy.

The news is filled with stories of people coming forward years later about their experiences of sexual assault. Many may question why they have taken so long to talk about what happened to them. The reality is that is not our business. Every person responds to trauma like sexual assault differently. Post-traumatic stress, anxiety about coming forward, and fear of being blamed are all realities for many victims. The fact remains that it does not matter when they come out, it’s important that they want to and it can often protect others from becoming victims.

Going to a meeting at school can be intimidating for many families. Now imagine how it feels for the parents of a child with special needs. They go into a room filled with teachers, administrators, and therapists of all kinds. Many may be new to this process after a new diagnosis. They can easily feel overwhelmed and unprepared. They may not understand what is being said to them. This can add to their stress and make them feel like outsiders in the IEP or other meetings taking place.
