What does a school-based speech-language pathologist do?
A speech-language pathologist’s (SLP) role in the school setting is to work with students, parents and staff to assess, diagnose, and treat disorders related to speech, language, voice, and/or fluency in order to support learning within an educational environment. In order for a communication disorder to be considered a disability within the school-based setting, it must exert an adverse effect on educational performance.
