SUPPORT FOR SPEECH THERAPIST

Goal (What is the main purpose of this grant):

For students of Hope School who are not able to speak, this grant provides a resident speech therapist for Hope School who will enable them to speak and to better communicate their needs, increasing their independence and their quality of life.

Rationale (Why is this grant important right now):

Among students at Hope Special School, approximately 30% of students face difficulty in communicating their everyday needs. Students range from needing minimum support in pronouncing certain words (example: stammering), to being completely nonverbal—unable to speak at all.

Impact (How the change created by the grant will be measured):

A sample of ten students at various stages of ability to speak (early stage, middle stage, advanced stage) will be selected and their progress will be reported in a descriptive report twice within the grant period
