Speech Therapy- defined
Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) are part of the educational team within a school district. SLP's provide service as a collaborative member of the Individualized Education Program (IEP), and Response To Intervention model (RTI) to students and on behalf of students through individual, group, whole classroom interventions and/or school wide initiatives.
School-based Speech Language Therapy is a service provided to help children prepare, perform and achieve academic success and social participation in the school setting.
Speech Language therapy is a supportive service directly related to the child’s ability to function within the educational setting. SLP observations, screenings, evaluations and treatment require a written consent from the student’s parent/primary caregiver.SLP's are highly trained to assist students to access curricular and extracurricular activities through the teaching and implementation of strategies. SLP's also play a key role in educating and training parents, teachers and caregivers to ensure overall success in the school setting.
Speech Language Therapy focuses on receptive language, expressive language, and pragmatic language.
• Receptive language is the ability to understand the things we see, hear, and read. • Expressive language is the ability to express yourself with spoken and written words, sign language/gestures, and pictures. Expressive language includes the articulation (the way we say sounds) and phonology (the rules of how we combine sounds), voice (the quality, volume and tone of the voice), and fluency/stuttering (the 'smooth' flow and rate of connected speech).
• SLP's work as a part of the collaborative team to assess and treat feeding and swallowing disorders.• SLP's work with audiologists to train, teach, and address hearing disorders.
• Pragmatic language focuses on the rules of social interactions – the expected ways to interact with others.
