Welcome to Mrs. Vollink's page!

Welcome to the speech room!  My name is Terri Vollink and this is my 17th year as the educational speech-language pathologist within the Adrian school district.  I have received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field of Communication Disorders through the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD.  My husband and I, along with our three children, live on an acreage south of Rock Rapids, IA.  I am originally from Lismore and attended high school here in Adrian. I enjoy playing with my kids, spending time with friends and family, going for walks, golfing, and canoeing.  I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to work at AES with such talented staff members and amazing students!  

As the educational speech-language pathologist in Adrian, I get the opportunity to work with students from birth to 21 years of age.  The students I provide therapy to have been assessed through the special education process and have qualified for services in the areas of articulation, language, voice, and/or fluency disorders.  Special education assessments begin with an outside agency, parent, or teacher referral.  If pre-referral interventions were proven unsuccessful, an evaluation in each of the areas of concern can proceed with the consent of the parents.  If found eligible under Minnesota state categorical criteria, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is proposed for the student based upon information gathered during the assessment process.  Once parents have given permission, the IEP is put into place and services begin in order to help that student gain more efficient communication skills.  Annually, the IEP document is reviewed and revised to best match the student's current level of need and appropriate communication goals as discussed by the special education team.
