Mrs. Christina Alfano
My name is Christina Alfano (formerly Christina Mennella) and I am so excited to be here at Claremont working as a Speech Language Pathologist (aka "speech teacher"). This will be my third year working in Franklin Township and I am so glad that I will be here full time. Prior to Franklin, I was employed for three years at The Shore Center For Students With Autism in Tinton Falls, NJ, as well as three years working at private speech and hearing clinics.
Throughout my career, the most important lesson I’ve learned is that each student is unique and special in their own way. Every student needs to be able to communicate, whether that be verbally, through sign language, with gestures, or with an AAC device. Please help me to help your child.
During the school year I will assign “speech homework” at various times for your child to complete. These assignments are intended to help your child carry over skills they are learning across multiple settings so that they are not just practicing in my speech room. For my preschool students, they will not receive as much "homework" as their sessions will be centered around play-based language stimulation. You may always contact me via e-mail if you have any comments/questions/concerns at: email@example.com
I look forward to working with both you and your child!
