          As a speech-language pathologist, I am responsible for screening and assessing students’ speech and language skills.  “Speech” refers to the ability to produce sounds correctly.  “Language” refers to the ability to correctly understand and use the words of the language.

     

    When students qualify for speech and language services, I am responsible for providing therapy.  I work with the Committee on Special Education to determine the best setting and intensity of services for each child. 

     

    I work with children singly or in groups, in my therapy room and in their classrooms. 

     

    I work very closely with the children’s teachers (classroom, reading and special education teachers) to provide the children with therapy to improve skills and use those skills in the classroom setting.
