Fax: 864-269-6701Hello, My name is Dorothy R. Whitner and I am the Speech Language Therapist at Concrete Primary. I have taught in Anderson School District One for 30+ years. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Speech Pathology from South Carolina State University, and a Master's degree from Clemson University. I also have 30 hours above my master’s degree in Education.Presently, I am a member of the South Carolina Speech Hearing and Language Association and the Upstate Piedmont Speech and Hearing Consortium just to name a few.I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, traveling, and attending SCSU football games- Go Bulldogs!Each year I continue to be excited about working with the students! My philosophy is “All children can learn”. I am a firm believer that everyone can and will communicate on some level given the right tools and opportunities to do so. The ability to communicate effectively is paramount to success in academics as well as future careers for students. Therefore, good speech and language skills are not to be taken lightly! I welcome and encourage you to be an active participant in improving your child's speech-language skills.
