Mary Jane Baker has been on staff since 1990 as AJ's speech pathologist. Her focus is working with children with speech and language delays and disorders, including articulation and phonology, receptive and expressive language delays, autism spectrum disorders, fluency, voice, and central auditory processing disorders.

During a typical school year, Mary Jane screens all of our AJ children in the 3's and 4's classes and younger children by referral. Our AJ Parent Association (PA) covers the cost of the initial screening. Comprehensive evaluations may follow screenings and individual therapy is offered at school. All further therapy payments are negotiated between Mary Jane Baker and the family.
