First Presbyterian Nursery School works with West Essex Speech Language Associates, LLC to provide speech therapy for our students. The following is a note from the owner and director, Liz Giuffrida.
"Treesh (Patricia) Ramsthaler is my independent contractor who works at First Pres. We are both Licensed and Certified Speech Language Pathologists. My practice and First Pres has had a relationship for many years and it has been fabulous! The way it works is I set up an appointment to screen children when parents and teachers have a concern. The screenings are free. Should the results of the screening indicate a need for further testing, I recommend a thorough speech and language evaluation to be completed at my office in Verona (there is a charge). Should the child be indicated for speech therapy I make that recommendation to the parent. If they choose to proceed, their child will be seen 1-2 times weekly while they are in school. Constant communication is conducted between the parent, the teacher and the speech pathologist."
