Joyce Norris, Speech Language Pathologist, received an Impact Grant from the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit Foundation, INC.  The grant funding allowed for the purchase of an iPad and apps to support students with speech and language needs.  The use of the iPad is helping students to improve their communication and master essential skills that are necessary for academic success across the curriculum.  The purchased apps are targeting articulation, language, and social skills.  The various apps allows for individualization to meet each child’s unique area of need.  The interactive nature of the iPad provides for the use with groups of students to enrich their learning.  The students are enjoying using the iPad to help improve and enhance their communication skills.
