Welcome to Speech and Language at Carlton!

Hi, and Welcome to my Carlton page!

I'm Joyce Halper, your speech language pathologist at Carlton. This is my fifth year in the Union School District, and I'm delighted to be working with students at Carlton and Lietz. 

Just to give a little background, I earned my master's degree in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program at San Jose State University. Prior to coming to USD, I worked in private practices and a variety of school settings, meeting the needs of children from 18 months to 18 years of age. Speech Language Pathology is a career change for me, having spent my previous work life in the corporate sector. I love what I do and the students with whom I get to work. I share my home life with my husband, Bill, and awesomely funny dog Maggie, with occasional visits from our daughter, Mollie, four stepkids and their spouses, and a couple of 'grand-puppies'.

One of my personal goals is to provide guidance to both parents and teachers on supporting language development both in the classroom and at home. I will post links periodically, so please check back to see what's been added. And, please, don't ever hesitate to contact me with any questions.

My contact information is:
