Speech Language Pathology
Academic success is rooted in students having the ability to read, write, listen, speak, and think effectively. These foundational skills are supported through direct and indirect services provided by speech-language pathologists (SLPs).
In schools, speech-language pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, and cognitive communication in children grades preschool through high school. School-based SLPs work with students who have been determined to have communication skill deficits that adversely impact their ability to access, participate and progress in the general education curriculum. An SLPs goal is to help improve how well a child is learning and performing in the classroom.
