Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work with children who have a variety of communication needs. These needs are generally related to articulation, language, voice, fluency and early literacy. SLPs also serve students who have complex communication needs associated with disabilities such as autism, physical impairment and head injury.
Several options are available for service delivery so that the student's individual needs are addressed. Service delivery options range from consultation and training with the student's educational team to one-to-one intervention with the student. SLPs work closely with teachers to support and enrich communication development in the classroom and work with the local school district to provide in-service training on communication-related topics.
