     Hi! My name is Brooke Deal and I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). This is my seventh year at Sand Hill Elementary and I love being a part of the Sand Hill "family". 

    My job is to help diagnose and treat students with communication impairments. Below is a brief description of Speech and Language Disorders:

    Speech Disorders
    • Articulation - the way we say our speech sounds
    • Phonology - the speech patterns we use
    • Apraxia - difficulty planning and coordinating the movements needed to make speech sounds
    • Fluency - stuttering
    • Voice - problems with the way the voice sounds, such as hoarseness
    Language Disorders
    • Receptive Language - difficulty understanding language
    • Expressive Language - difficulty using language
    • Pragmatic Language - social communication; the way we speak to each other


    A little 'about me':

    Originally from Tifton, Georgia, I attended Valdosta State University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Speech-Language Pathology. I graduated with my Master's Degree in 1998. I'm married and my husband and I have two daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family on our farm. We have horses that we enjoy caring for on a daily basis. One of our daughters is an equestrian and is involved with hunter/jumper shows. My free time is usually something horse-related. We also have two additional four-legged members, Lilly and Roy that are very much a part of our family.

    If you need to get in touch with me to discuss speech or language concerns, my email is: bdeal@effingham.k12.ga.us or the school phone number is 912-728-5112. Have a great day!
