As part of school and Learning Services teams, Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) assess the communication strengths and needs of students. SLPs assist in developing strategies and programs that maximize comprehension, expression, literacy, learning and social outcomes for students referred by school teams.
Speech Language Pathologists offer educational opportunities for all staff as well as assistance to educators in developing group and individual supports which meet the communication needs of all students to maximize learning and personal growth.
SLPs support families to understand the communication strengths and needs of their children in order to maximize language, literacy and social success. SLPs offer parent/guardian educational opportunities and programs, as well as connect families with community agencies.
As part of a school team, SLPs strive to embed communication goals holistically within the school program, enhancing the unique skills of all professionals involved in order to achieve maximum effectiveness,
clarity of purpose, and efficiency in service delivery.
