The Atlanta Speech School provides Extended Day Programs for students in preschool to 6th grade. The goal of the Extended Day Program is to provide a safe, fun, and caring community that offers engaging activities, both directed and independent-play, for our students. Operating as an extension of the school day, the program exists to develop the whole child through recreational activities in a language-rich and nurturing environment.
