Welcome to the Valley Ridge Academy (VRA) Speech and Language Website

If you are concerned about your child’s speech and/or language skills, speak with his/her teacher first to see if it’s having an impact on their academics. If it is, the teacher will contact us and we will initiate a speech/language referral that will begin with a screen. If non-developmental sound errors are noted on the screen, a formal evaluation is then recommended. If weaknesses with language (expressive/receptive communication skills) are noted, the student will then be referred to the Multi-Tiered System of Support/ Response to Intervention (MTSS/RTI) team for further review.

If you are a parent with a child already receiving speech/language therapy and have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please call or email your child’s SLP and she will get back to you as soon as possible.

Here at VRA, our Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) team includes:

  • Holly Nover (5 days a week)
  • Helena Craviero (3 days a week)
  • LaTascha Williamson (2 days a week)
  • Courtney Smith (2 days a week)

Thank you for taking the time to visit and feel free to look around!
