Mrs. E. Blake Peery - Speech Language Pathologist
Hello! My name is Blake Peery and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist for Cabarrus County Schools. I am a graduate of East Carolina University. I grew up in Stanly County, but have lived and worked in Raleigh, NC, Virginia Beach and Richmond, VA. I am finally glad to be 'back home.' I now live in Mount Pleasant and am a proud parent of two Mount Pleasant Tigers. This is my eleventh year as an SLP. I have worked in both school, early intervention, and private practice settings with students of all ages. This is my sixth year with Cabarrus County Schools and I am very excited to work with your student! I will serve Mount Pleasant and Bethel Elementary Schools as well as Mount Pleasant Middle School this year.
Speech-Language Services in the school setting are provided to help children be successful communicators in the classroom environment. This includes: properly saying sounds so speech is easier to understand, improving the ability to better understand classroom instruction/better express thoughts and ideas, and increasing fluent speech so speech is smoother and easier to understand.
Instruction is geared towards those skills that can best help your child participate in their classroom environment. Instruction may be provided in the environment that best fits each individual student’s needs; in the speech room or in the child's classroom.
If you are concerned about your child's speech, contact your child's teacher to see if a speech referral is needed. I will be happy to help you in any way that I can this year.
