SEPTEMBER PARTNER PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT:
Mission Dolores Academy
"Thanks to a generous grant from Children of Shelters, Mission Dolores Academy launched a comprehensive Speech and Language Program in the 2019/2020 school year. Thirty-one children were identified as being language impaired, and they began intensive one-on-one speech and language therapy. We are excited to report that all students made significant strides in their language development and are well on their way to language proficiency.
Based on this program’s success, MDA will be expanding SLP services in 2020-2021. Initially, all incoming Kindergartners will be tested for proficiency, and our SLP services will begin remotely. We are excited about the future of this program, and we are confident that our students are gaining the skills to access grade-level curriculum."
