Speech and Language

 

Meet Mrs. Stinson

 

Tell me about yourself.

I grew up in southern New Jersey and attended Muhlenberg College, where I received my B.S. in Natural Science. After college, I worked for two years doing in-home ABA therapy for children with autism in the Philadelphia area. I then moved to Boston and earned my Masters in Speech Pathology from Northeastern University. While completing my Masters, I worked as a Research Assistant and participated in two different projects focused on Voice Output Communication Aids. After graduation from Northeastern, I completed my Clinical Fellowship in Brooklyn, NY at a preschool for children with autism. I then moved to Portland, ME and worked at The REACH School for six years providing speech/language therapy to children ages 1-6 with a variety of developmental disabilities. When my husband got a job in midcoast Maine in 2013, I began working for RSU #13.  

 

Why do you like teaching speech & language?

I enjoy the variety that is involved with Speech/Language therapy. I like working with students in small groups on everything from speech sound errors to social skills.  

 
 

What is your plan for parent contact?

Feel free to contact me anytime via phone (354-6353) or email (kstinson@rsu13.org).

 

What are your homework guidelines?

I do not typically assign homework. However, if parents request, I’m happy to create home practice sheets for individual students.
