Mrs. Downey

I am a Nebraska and ASHA certified speech-language pathologist, M.S., CCC-SLP. I received an M.S. degree from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. During the 2021-2022 school year, I am excited to be serving the children and families from birth to five years of age, St. Agnes Preschool, and all students at Community Christian School.

Early childhood learning is most effective when based in play and active engagement with consistent adults and peers. Birth through age five are critical years in the development of a child and wonderful opportunities to work cooperatively with families as children develop the skills necessary to be successful in school and in relationships. The focus of early intervention includes all areas of child development. The focus of speech-language therapy is specifically centered on eating concerns, social language, language understanding and use, and speech intelligibility (how well your child's speech is understood).

I would love to talk to you if you have any questions or concerns about your child's development.  Please feel free to contact me at ldowney@sbps.net or 308-641-4908.
