Miss Kimberly Cullen
Welcome to the Speech Webpage!
My name is Miss. Cullen, the Speech/Language Specialist at Robinson Elementary School.
There are currently two speech therapists that serve our school. Please see Jason Witkowski's page if your child sees him for services.
Please find some helpful resources on here to assist your child in practicing their goals and objectives!
I hope you students and family are doing well and healthy. Please continue to check email daily for speech times and link to the zoom meeting. These sessions are important to attend in order to continue making progress towards your students goals. Please email me if you cannot attend a session or if there is a time conflict.
I have sent a consent form for teletherapy to your email that was provided to the school. Please respond with or without your consent to verify you recieved the information!
Due to school closure, I will be implementing a remote learning plan. I will be avaliable via email Monday-Friday from 9am-1pm. Please email me with any questions regarding your child's speech/language packet that was sent home. These items can be practiced and reused multiple times to strengthen their skills. There is enough materials for your child for up to 4-6 weeks. Every child that recieves services was sent home a packet. Please check your folders from your child's teacher for these materials. I look forwards to assisting in any way I can to help your child succeed.
