Mrs. Lorenz' Communication Corner


Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year

September 6: Regular sessions will begin the week of September 9



Home Practice Policy: I strongly encourage my students to complete home practice on a regular basis.  I feel that it is important for students to practice their communication skills in a variety of settings with a variety of listeners.  This aids in carryover of the skills we are working on in the therapy setting.  I give articulation home practice pages out regularly. Students who return a required amount of homework (based on their goals and therapy schedule), will be rewarded with a prize from my prize box.  I require adult "listener" signatures on completed home practice pages. If a child does not have a home practice page at home,  they may read a page or paragraph aloud  and focus on their target sounds as they read. If they have language goals, it is appropriate for them to read a lengthier passage and answer comprehension questions or summarize their reading for you. In these cases, I will accept a note or email from you stating that they have completed home practice.






About ME: I was raised in West Branch, Michigan and graduated from Ogemaw Heights High School.  I attended Grand Valley State University and received a Master's Degree from Western Michigan University.  It's tough being a Bronco in this CMU territory!  laugh I live in Greenville with my husband, Mark, and son, Kyle.  We have a chocolate lab named Baxter and a cat named Zoey.  In my spare time I enjoy watching my son particpate in sports, walking, reading, and travelling.  I am an avid football fan, GO LIONS and WOLVERINES! In addition to my role as Speech-language Pathologist, I am also the middle school student government advisor and Parent Teacher Organization President.

Student government application packets will be out Friday, September 13!
