WHO ARE WE Speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) are highly trained professionals who can help people make their lives richer, more productive and enjoyable through improved communication skills. We identify, assess and treat children and adults with communication disorders. In the public school setting we collaborate with teachers, parents and other educators. We strive to help the more than 10% of students who have speech, language, auditory, voice and stuttering disorders. Most of these students encounter barriers to accessing the curriculum and fully developing language and literacy skills as a result of their communication disorder. Speech-language pathologists care passionately about the needs of students.

Speech and language thrapy is likely to be the single most critical intervention provided in support of developmental delays for elementary aged educationally at-risk students. We cannot afford to continue with this trend.......
