Speech and Language Itinerant Services

The School-Age Speech and Language Program provides assessment and treatment for school-aged students enrolled in regular and special education classrooms. Assessment and treatment focuses on a variety of areas that may impact a student’s ability to communicate within the educational setting. Disorders may include:

  • Articulation
  • Stuttering
  • Apraxia
  • Understanding and ability to use language
  • Swallowing/eating difficulties
  • Assistive technology
  • Social Pragmatic Language

Our goal is to determine eligibility and design a treatment plan that supports the student’s individual strengths and needs to the greatest extent possible. The Speech Language Therapist may serve students directly or work with educators and families to address communication and language needs across all school environments.
