Ms. Kristin Taipale

Welcome to my page! I am a Wisconsin native who joined the Special Services team in 2014. Both my undergraduate and graduate degrees were obtained at UW- Eau Claire where I studied Communication Sciences and Disorders (Speech Pathology). Throughout my career, I have worked at all levels from birth-to-three through high school. 

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and our dogs. We spend our free time outdoors exploring the country and different parks. 

Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions or concerns with regards to your child's communication skills. 

  • In the New Richmond School District, the Speech- Language Special Services Program provides a continuum of services for communication impaired students, including early identification, evaluation, therapy and consultation.  Speech and/or language services are provided when it is documented that the student needs services to benefit from the educational program.  These services are collaborative and focus on skills that promote attainment of educational objectives.  Service delivery models may vary according to the needs of the student, and include direct, consultative and tracking/monitoring.  Frequency of services is based on the student's needs.  Communication disorders may be exhibited by an impairment in any one or a combination of the following:


    Speech- Language services are provided for students identified according to the guidelines of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (WI DPI).  Services are provided for students, ages 3-21 enrolled in the School District of New Richmond Public.  Preschoolers (3-5 years) and non-public school students who attend school in New Richmond and meet WI DPI criteria may receive speech and/ or language therapy in the public school setting.
