DuBard School Students Advance to Local School Districts
By: KaTrisha Roberson
Nineteen students from the DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) are returning to their local school districts next year. The advancing students were recognized at The DuBard School awards ceremony held recently on the Hattiesburg campus.
“We are so proud of all our students and excited that these exiting students are starting a new chapter in their lives. They have worked hard to be successful with their speech, language, and academic skills, and we know they will continue to do great work.” – Dr. Missy Schraeder, DuBard School Director.
The DuBard School currently serves 80 children in its full-time enrollment program. These children have an average of 5.6 diagnoses each, with primary disability rulings in speech, language, and/or hearing. The school is non-graded, with students progressing at their own rates of progress. On average, children attend DuBard School for five years before returning to the their home school districts to continue their education.
The DuBard School is privileged to serve students from our state who have significant difficulties with speech, language, hearing, and academic skills. The enrollment program provides full-day therapy by our speech-language pathologists all at no cost to our families.
