• What is a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP)?

    SLP's work directly with teachers, psychologists, social workers, school counselors, parents, and administrators to provide comprehensive 
    speech/language
    assessments and interventions for students. Services may be provided in small group or individual sessions, teaming with teachers,
    or on a
    consultative basis.  SLPs develop speech/language goals based upon a student's academic outcomes and functional performance.

    Why do we need to improve our speech and language skills?

    Speech and language skills are essential to academic success and learning. Language is the basis of communication and learning takes place through 
    the
    communication process.  Language occurs in many forms, including gesturing, listening, speaking, reading, and writing.   The ability to communicate
    with
    peers and adults in the educational setting is essential for a student to succeed in school (www.asha.org).
