Speech and language services are provided for school-age children with communication disorders that adversely affect children’s educational performance. SLPs work with children who have a variety of disabilities which can include:

  • Language
  • Voice
  • Fluency or Stuttering
  • Articulation
  • Swallowing , also called Dysphagia

  • Hearing loss
  • Cleft Palate
  • Cerebral Palsy and other Motor Problems
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism
  • Developmental Delays
  • Traumatic brain injuries

SPLs have many roles in schools. They often, but not limited to, identification students at risk for later problems, participate in assessment of students’ communication skills, conduct evaluate results of comprehensive assessments, develop and implement IEPs, and collaborate with teachers and other professionals. Often, SPLs combine communication goals with academic and social goals. Service delivery can be in the form of monitoring, consultation, direct service in the classroom, and/or direct service outside of the classroom.
