2018-2019 Welcome Back!

Welcome back to another year of learning, fun, and improving speech, language and communication skills!

This year the SLPs (Speech-Language Pathologists) serving your school age students at Blackwell are Laurie Wheeler and Janine Lock.

Laurie is beginning her 20th year at Blackwell after working as a clinic and hospital based SLP for 10 years. She serves students at Blackwell and also serves as an Autism Support SLP for the district. She holds a state license and ASHA certification.

Janine has worked at Blackwell for the past 14 years as our preschool SLP, and has transitioned to the school age position this year.  She worked for Cobb County as a supply SLP throughout the county in all age levels for 2 years before coming to Blackwell.  Prior to pursuing her passion in Speech and Language Pathology, Janine had many jobs, including many years in banking, owning 2 restaurants and 2 children’s clothing stores.

The links on this blog contain resources such as articles, helpful websites and apps, and links to practice materials.  We will add new resources periodically, so if you have a specific interest or need, please let us know.

We are both very excited to be working together to serve your students! Please feel free to contact us via email anytime.  We are always happy to address questions and concerns by email, phone or a meeting, and we’re looking forward to a fantastic school year!
