The speech program is definitely one of THE best things we have done to support students and families since my time at VEPS (14 years!!).  So again, thank you. Debbie Penrose

Hi Sue, Just thought i should touch base with you about Olivia. She is doing an amazing job! We have had some staff TPL, staff participating in lessons this week and parent involvement after that. Olivia’s presentation to our staff was informative, engaging and practical. What a confident, knowledgeable, approachable member of your team and ours! Regards,  Jodi Niedermayer
