Alyxandra DiRenzo

Speech Pathologist - Mountain View

Hello and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

My name is Alyx DiRenzo and I am excited to announce that this is my THIRD year at Mountain View Elementary School.

My caseload presents with a variety of unique children from Preschool to 5th grade. I work with children with an array of strengths. I completed my undergraduate degree at The University of Delaware in Cognitive Science/Speech Language Pathology with minors in Human Development and Family Studies and Disabilities Studies. I received my Master's in Speech Language Pathology at Long Island University-Post.  

I have always had a passion for working with children, especially those with special needs. Something I love most about being a Speech Language Pathologist is helping my students communicate easily and effectively with their friends, teachers and most importantly, family. Speech therapy allows a child to reach his/her full potential, both academically and socially.  
I believe in making therapy engaging, functional and fun while targeting each child's specific needs. 

I posted a link to some of my favorite resources, please take a look!

Please feel free to email me with any questions at alyxandra.direnzo@motsd.org.

Looking forward to meeting your children and to having a wonderful year! 

-Miss Alyx/Miss DiRenzo

Homework Assignments

Speech Folders

Each child receiving speech services will be given a speech folder to bring home and back to school each day.  Within this folder, each child will have a communication log where you (the parent/guardian) may write any questions or concerns you may have.  

On occasion, I will ask for a child to complete an assignment at home.  These assignments should not take more than 10 minutes a night. A child working on targeting a specific sound might be asked to read a list of words or a book to a parent/guardian to practice his/her sound.  Another child with a goal based on increasing language  skills may be given a fun and enjoyable task to complete.  This type of activity might include coloring a picture by following specific directions read aloud by a parent or playing a game (i.e bingo, cards) with a family member to work on turn-taking skills.  Engaging with your child for this short time allows for the best carryover of the specific goals we target throughout each session. We are a TEAM and working together is the best way to ensure the best results for each child.

 Please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or phone with any questions!
