Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ana Bankovics and I am excited to be the Speech-Language Pathologist working with students in grades 5-8 at Global Arts Plus Upper. Services for students who are eligible for speech services may work with me individually and/or in a small group in the speech resource room or in the classroom, as appropriate.
I work with students who have a variety of speech and language needs, including difficulties with:
1. Producing speech sounds.
2. Limited vocabulary.
3. Answering questions and recalling ideas from verbal or written information.
3. Remembering or understanding directions, details, or classroom routines.
4 Describing things, retelling stories, following or maintaining topic of conversation.
5. Repeating sounds, repeating words, stopping sounds in the middle of the word or prolonging sounds.
6. Voice quality that is too loud, too quiet, rough, and/or hoarse.
In addition, I work with students using a variety of augmentative systems to assist in communication across school settings.
Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions regarding speech and language services.
