If you've earned the prestigious honor of delivering the class graduation speech, that means you'll be the voice of your graduating class. It's a huge responsibility, but also a great fortune. To deliver a graduation speech, work on writing something both memorable and meaningful, practice beforehand, memorize the bulk of your speech but give yourself clear notes, use engaging body language, and speak at a slow yet natural pace. The truth is that when you've written an awesome graduation speech, delivering it in front of your peers, parents, and teachers is an experience that you'll never forget -- and hopefully, neither will they.
Knowledge and Skills Acquisition: All students must demonstrate that they are competent in the knowledge and skills as defined by the 2014 ASHA Standards.

It is the belief of Magnolia Speech School that barriers imposed by deafness and language impairments can frequently be overcome through early identification and intervention. It is believed these children need a specialized, self-contained classroom now in order to learn the language necessary to function in other academic settings later. These children must receive as much individualized instruction as possible, as well as full parental support and involvement. Parents and staff must work as a team with mutual trust and respect in order for the child to succeed.
