    I will be at Atlas Elementary during the above class times. The best way to reach me is via email. 
    My name is Kristi Hanson and I am a certified and licensed Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). This is my fifth year as a SLP in the CDA School District, and my third year in the preschool. I love that I can provide services for students in the same school district I attended from elementary school through high school. This school district got me to where I am today, doing what I love! My husband and I are thrilled to raise our two young daughters in this community, with plenty of adventure for our family (including our two massive dogs!). Every child has a voice, and I consider myself lucky to be part of such a strong team to help all of those voices be heard.

About the Class:

  • We are all excited to be starting another year of speech therapy services in the preschool phonology class! This year preschool phonology classes will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in the morning at Atlas Elementary.
    All that is needed for the first day is a backpack and diapers/pull-ups/wipes and a spare change of clothing. We will send home a requested school supplies and snack list after the first or second session. Your help with supplies is appreciated and you can be assured they will be used this school year.
    For these first 2 weeks in the preschool phonology class, we will be addressing the early developing phonological processes of syllable reduction and final consonant deletion. We will also be re-screening the articulation and phonology of all students to assess their present speech concerns and introducing or re-introducing students to the routines/expectations of our class. 
    Please remember that homework is an essential component for success in our program – the more attention given to helping the kiddos improve their speech, the faster they will improve, so please check the backpacks after each session to read about what we have done in class and to look over the homework for that week. Reviewing the weekly target words with your child (doing the homework) is essential to their progress in this program!
