Ms. Siepierski - Warsaw Central MHS

  • Hello! I am the Speech-Language Pathologist at the middle/high school level, and one of three speech and language professionals working at the elementary level. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's development in terms of speech and language, the best thing to do is give me a phone call and share with me what your thoughts are. You can call me at school at 786-8000, ext. 2113. Leave me a voicemail if I don't answer and I will be sure to get back to you. You can also E-mail me at: jsiepierski@warsaw.k12.ny.us

    I have provided some links to webpages from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) that can help you understand the basics of speech and language development, and differentiate between a language disorder versus a language delay. Just click "my links" on the left side of this page.

    I look forward to helping you and your child!


    For your convenience, below is a list of the areas of speech and language that may be addressed at school:

    Expressive language- Oral and written expression of ideas. 

    Receptive language- How well you understand language, in either oral or written formats.

    Auditory comprehension/ Auditory processing- The understanding of language presented in a listening format.

    Auditory memory- A person's ability to remember and/or manipulate information that is presented in a listening format.

    Phonological development/ Articulation- The way an individual sounds to a listener, in terms of making correct speech sounds (intelligibility of speech).

    Fluency- How smooth one's speech sounds to a listener (stuttering).
