About Speech Language Therapy

Public School Speech-Language Therapists are communication specialists who work with both general education and special education students with language handicaps, articulation deficits, dysfluencies, and voice disorders.  Speech-Language Therapists serve as a resource to school staff members in the development of a balanced program for oral communication and speech improvement. They assist and guide teachers in achieving, describing, and referring suspected and identified speech and language impairments. They are charged with appropriate screening and assessment administration and assist in referrals of individuals to agencies and specialists in the community. Speech-Language Therapists provide individualized programs of therapy to meet students’ needs, serve as members of the Committee on Special Education and provide information and support to parents and families as appropriate.
