Speech Therapy

The TQS integrated model incorporates the benefits of speech and language therapy into every class.

Our two full-time speech and language pathologists observe and support all TQS students.  The therapists assist students in the classroom, and provide teachers with strategies to use during the day across all settings.  The therapists also offer direct, one-to-one services for an additional fee.
