Extension:Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgMy name is Lacey Defreitas and I am excited to be serving at Dublin Elementary School as the Speech Therapist for the 2010-2011 school year. I have been working as an SLP since 2004 and have a wide variety of experience with a range of age groups and subcategories within the field of Speech/Language. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in 2000 and my M.A. in Speech/Language Pathology in 2004 from Cal State University Los Angeles.I was previously employed as a private contractor for the past 6 years where I did work in hospital settings, school settings from Preschool to High School, as well as private therapy within a private speech/language clinic. My experience in the area of speech and language therapy includes expertise in: articulation, expressive/receptive language disorders, auditory processing disorders, autism, SDC classrooms, mild/moderate/severe learning disabilities, medically fragile students, PECS training (Picture Exchange Communication System), fluency, TBI (traumatic brain injury), AAC (alternative and augmentative communication), preschool intervention, and a variety of syndromes related to speech/language disorders.I'm looking forward to being part of the Dublin Elementary team and will do my best in supporting the students, staff and parents in the best possible way that I can. I thoroughly enjoy working with students in helping them reach their potential when it comes to communicating. I believe all students deserve the opportunity to communicate their basic wants and needs as well as be confident in their communication abilities. I will ALWAYS strive to do my best to make this possible."The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives." - Anthony Robbins
