Mrs. Theresa Murphy
About the Teacher
Mrs. Theresa Murphy works with students with Speech-Language needs who are in grades First through Eigth Grade. She works closely with the classroom teachers of the individual students which allows her to use many of the same materials presented in the classrooms. Students can develop and improve receptive and expressive language skills with classroom materials in Mrs. Murphy’s Speech room so that they can be more successful in the classroom.
Sometimes homework is assigned and may take between 2-3 minutes each day. Unlike homework from classroom teachers, most of the homework assigned by Mrs. Murphy should be repeated daily until the next speech session. Care should be taken to ensure students practice speech sounds accurately so that the new speech patterns can become habitual.
Mrs. Murphy received her Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from St. Xavier University and her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Elmhurst College. Mrs. Murphy holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American-Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Illinois State Certification and Illinois State Licensure.
