The Speech and Language Department at CHS provides support to students who
    experience difficulty in one or more of the following areas:
    Expressive Language: The ability to express and sequence ideas clearly using
     correct grammar and syntax (word order).
    Receptive Language: The ability to understand spoken language, follow directions,
    and make sense of classroom instruction.
    Phonological Awareness: Understanding that words are made up of sounds,
    sounds can be manipulated to change words, and sounds correspond to letters
    in print.
    Articulation/Phonology: The ability to produce sounds in a manner appropriate to the child's age.
    Fluency: The ability to communicate ideas without excessive repetitions and hesitations.
    Voice: *The ability to use correct voice volume, quality, and pitch.
    *Voice disorders often require a referral from an Ear Nose and Throat doctor. 

    Educational Impact: Often difficulties in these areas can interfere with a child's
    educational progress, academically, emotionally, or socially. When one or more of these areas listed above begins to negatively impact a child's success in school, intervention may be necessary.
    Students are enrolled in the Speech and Language Program after a referral procedure that involves the child's parents, teacher, and speech-language pathologist.
