Melissa Largent, M.S.CCC-SLP

My name is Melissa Largent.  I have been the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) for the Early Childhood Special Education ( ECSE) program at Lake Ridge Elementary since 2021. I have been providing early intervention speech therapy to children since 2008.  My goal is to give every scholar a voice so they can communicate and learn effectively. I look forward to working with your child this year.

Speech Language Pathologist's for CHISD provide therapy for students with an impairment in the following areas-

Language (Receptive, Expressive, Social, Alternative Augmentive Communication (AAC))

Articulation ( Speech intelligibility) 

Fluency ( Stuttering) 

Voice ( Pitch, Resonance, Quality).
