• Welcome to Speech and Language!

    I am so happy to be working with your child in Speech and Language this year!  I am licensed in New Jersey and New York, and I am certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.  In speech we work on voice, receptive language, expressive language, articulation, and fluency.  Please send in a pocket folder with your child for speech homework. Completing speech homework is a great way to carryover speech goals outside of the speech room.  If you need to contact me, please feel free to call me at 609-631-4165 extension 5837, or email me at sbakal@hamilton.k12.nj.us.  Please refer to the The Stuttering Foundation website (www.stutteringhelp.org) for wonderful information on fluency, and to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association website (www.asha.org/public) for great information on speech and language development.
