Speech & Language therapy helps individuals communicate effectively. Speech & Language therapists (SLPs) work in a variety of settings across the school, in individual and group sessions, and as a push-in or pull-out service. SLPs work with the educational team in order to support a child’s academic achievement including their ability to learn and socialize. Specific areas SLPs can address include the following: social engagement, speech sounds, expressive language, social and cognitive communication, voice, fluency, and feeding or swallowing. For students with Apraxia, SLPs may also be targeting and re-teaching oral motor plans.
