Welcome to Higley Traditional Academy!
My name is Jackie Kaye and I am the speech language pathologist for the 2019-2020 school year.
I have 28 years experience as a speech pathologist. I am also bilingual and speak English and Spanish fluently.
I am very excited to be working at Higley Traditional Academy this school year. This is a wonderful school filled with great, caring teachers and staff working together to see your child gets the best education and succeed in school.
The speech and language program services children who have difficulties in the following: articulation, receptive and expressive language skills,social language skills(pragmatics), voice and fluency delays. These are issues that can impact your child's progress in the educational setting.
Your child will be pulled out for either direct services or inclusion services or consultation services. Keep in mind our goal is to have your child stay in the general education setting as much as possible, to not miss the wonderful instruction from their teacher.
We also have a program called Speech Improvement Program, which is an intervention program for any student that might have developmental or any communication weakness and it is part of the general education program. It is not an IEP, rather it is a program that addresses the child's communication weakness and the SLP/SLPA works with your child for limited time per week to improve their communication needs.
Please talk with your SLP/SLPA at your school if you have further questions.
My days at HTA: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Office hours: 7:30-3:30 If you need to make an appointment please call the school at 480.279.6800
Goals of speech: Your child will know their speech goals and chart their own data to see how much progress they have made.
They will improve in communication skills.
