My name is Kale Benefield. I have 15 years experience as a Speech/Language Pathologist in Polk County. I hold a Masters degree in Speech/Language Pathology and an Educational Specialist degree in Special Education-Collaborative Instruction. I believe that effective communication skills are a vital part of every aspect of life. Students need appropriate communication skills for success in both the academic and social arenas of school so that they may develop positive working and social relationships as adults. I also believe that collaboration with parents and other professionals is crucial for the generalization and mastery of goals within different contexts to be achieved.
