Ms. Amy Hawkins
Hello, I am Amy Hawkins.
I have been providing speech and language services for the public school system for 25 years.
I provide a continuum of therapy services at Van Wert Elementary, ranging from an indirect consultative model to a more direct speech/language resource delivery model. My primary goal is to aid students in becoming effective communicators and to ensure that all students with listening and/or speaking impairments are provided with full access to the curriculum.
Speech services are provided based on careful consideration of each student's individual speech/language needs. I believe all students are capable of learning to become effective communicators. I also believe learning to be a continuous adventure and I try to instill in my students a sense of enthusiasm and wonderment along the way as we strive to achieve our speech & language goals.
