My name is Donnie Ball. I am the Speech Language Pathologist here at Fairview Independent Schools. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Marshall University in Huntington WV and my masters degree from Western Kentucky University. I have been employed with Fairview Independent Schools for 16 years and l love my job.
My role as a Speech Language Pathologist is to provide speech, language and hearing screenings, identify and evaluate suspected disorders, and provide services to qualifying students. Services may include articulation, receptive and/or expressive language, voice, or fluency interventions.
The best part of my job is the children I work with everyday. When they succeed I succeed. There is nothing more fulfilling than to see the light bulb go off in a child's eyes when they finally are able to articulate a sound for the first time or increase their language form, content or use. Not only do the students learn everyday but so do I. I'm always a phone call or email away from answering any question or concern you as a parent have regarding your child.
