Being a hero isn’t just being in the right place at the right time; it can also be what a person decides to do with their life and what impression they make on those throughout it. For Brandy Harrelson, it was a no brainer.
“I am a speech language pathologist,” explained Harrelson. “…I work with kids, ages two to six, who have speech and language delays or problems.”
Harrelson said she sees kids either once a week for an hour or twice a week for half-hour sessions.
During these sessions, she helps her students practice sounds that they can’t say or work on language skills like asking questions or answering questions correctly.
“The younger ones, like the two-year-olds, they may not be talking a lot or you can’t understand them,” said Harrelson. “So we work on building their vocabulary, or help them form the phrases they should be able to.”
