About Mrs. Coughlin

Hi there!  My name is Lori Coughlin and this is my second year at Deretchin and my eighth year as a practicing Speech Language Pathologist.  I am excited to be your child's SLP this year!

My two children attend Deretchin Elementary and I couldn't be more excited to get to be a part of the Dragon family!

I graduated from Oklahoma State University with my Master's Degree in Communication Sciences & Disorders in 2001. Having a husband in the military provided me the opportunity to work in many different states and settings.  I have worked in schools with preK through 12th grade, as well as hospitals, clinics and rehabilitation centers.  My favorite, by far, are my elementary kids!  :)

I hope to help all of my students make progress with their speech and language goals, and encourage them to be the best communicators they can be!

The speech room is completely out
of these items and is in need of donations
to help keep us germ-free:
1.  Kleenex/tissue
2.  Clorox wipes
3.  Paper Towels
Please mark donations with "SPEECH"
and send in with your child.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Parent Resource Center Info:


Grades 1-4:  "Egg"cellent Speech!

Uncurl the "feathers" and have your child use each word in a sentence or short story for extended practice.  Your child can practice language skills by constructing sentences or answering questions about the items on their "feathers".  Fluency strategies can be practiced by making sentences and short stories about the words on their "feathers".  
Happy Speech Practice!

Practice speech sounds 3-5 minutes daily!

In an effort to reduce paper waste, I will no longer be sending out monthly homework calendars.  You may request a homework calendar if you would like home practice ideas.  Please email homework requests to LCoughlin@conroeisd.net.
