What is a Speech Language Pathologist?
A Speech Language Pathologist is a professional with expertise in speech and language development as well as swallowing, cognition, auditory processing, phonological awareness and written language. Speech Language Pathologists in the schools primarily work with students to develop listening skills, oral expression, written expression, comprehension, early reading skills, and social skills. Students may receive services in individual sessions, small groups, or collaboratively within their classroom, depending on their individual needs.
