• Chedid


    Hi my name is Jessica Chedid and I am the Speech and Language Specialist here at Lincoln Elementary School. I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2015 with my Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Prior to working at Lincoln, I worked for four years at a private school for children with special needs. I grew up in North Brunswick and would come to New Brunswick often for many reasons. I feel very close to this city and strive to make a difference in our students' lives. 

    What do I do?

    As a speech-language specialist in a school I work on a variety of communication skills. I work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, and cognitive-communication in children. I help children who have difficulty producing speech sounds correctly or fluently (e.g., stuttering is a form of disfluency) or have problems with his or her voice or resonance. I also help children who have trouble understanding others (receptive language), or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings (expressive language). Cognitive-communication deficits include problems organizing thoughts, paying attention, remembering, planning, and/or problem-solving. Overall, I am here to help children communicate effectively.

    To best help your children at home you can:

    1. Read with them, talk about the pictures, talk about what is going on in the story, sequence events, and relate it back to your life and experiences. 
    2. Do activities with your children- cook together, go grocery shopping, play a game, etc. while talking about what you are doing. 
    3. Practice your child’s speech sounds (look at a variety of pictures).
