Special Education (Exceptional Student Services)
Speech Language Pathologists
Lewis-Palmer School District's team of speech-language pathologists strive to provide high-quality services for our students. Our primary responsibilities include evaluating and providing services to students with identified communication disorders that prevent them from benefiting from their education. A communication disorder may be present if a student has difficulties with their articulation, receptive language, expressive language, pragmatic language (social communication), voice, or fluency skills. Our speech-language pathologists are also involved in providing preventative services though the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), collaborating with families, special education, and general education staff, and attending professional development opportunities to be aware of/deliver current evidence-based practices.

My name is Cheryl Young and I am pleased to be starting my tenth year at Prairie Winds Elementary School. I have been practicing 20+ years in the field of speech-language pathology. I received my Bachelors of Education and Masters of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. I love working with the children and their families in this district.
I have provided resource information and links to help all who visit my page in my chosen field. I hope you find the information educational and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions regarding speech and language concerns.
