Mrs. Demetria Whitaker

Hello to all, my name is Demetria Whitaker and I have worked as a Speech-Language Pathologist for thirteen years. This is the beginning of my twelfth year at O.W. Huth Middle School.  My greatest passion is helping students enhance their total communication skills. This includes, but is not limited to helping students improve their speech articulations/phonology, fluency, receptive and expressive vocabulary, language comprehension, auditory processing, social pragmatic/language and problem solving skills. My continued desire is for students to communicate their thoughts and needs effectively and utilize good social reasoning/judgement.
