Speech & Language Therapy

School-based Speech Therapy supports the educational program for students who have a disorder in communication involving articulation, language, fluency and/or voice. Speech and Language Therapists work as members of a multidisciplinary team that serves children schoolwide in the development of communication and language skills needed for school success.

The IEP team must take care in differentiating for ELL students a language difference as opposed to a speech/language impairment. If an ELL student is encountering only language differences, ESL services not speech/language therapy should be provided.
