Ms. Jenna Didier, CCC-SLP

Hello! I am Jenna Didier and I am the speech-language pathologist in the LEAP classroom. LEAP stands for Life skills, Education and Academic Program and is a classroom of students 6-8 with a variety of disabilities and communication needs. I co-teach in the classroom with a special education teacher and am able to work with students throughout the entire day on their speech/language needs, as well as social language skills. 

A little about me...I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Augustana College and received my masters degree at Eastern Illinois University. I really enjoy working with the autism population, as well as working on students executive functioning needs. I hope that you are able to use this site to find resources and information relating to speech and language needs for your student.
