Our mission is:
To provide the highest quality speech and movement experiences to as many students as possible, involving community and other teachers, including speech and language professionals.
Basic Principles of the Conversaid Philosophy
I. All people are communicators.
II. Therefore, all people can achieve basic speech competence. ARTA defines basic speech competence as the ability to speak in English with accurate pronunciation and rhythm.
III. The participation and modeling of parents and teachers, regardless of their speech ability, is essential to a students speech development and growth.
IV. This growth is best achieved in a creative, developmentally appropriate, non-result-oriented learning atmosphere that is positive, yet highly technical and creative for the students-and the teachers to collaborate.
