Educationally Relevant Speech-Language Services in Schools

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) working in school settings are faced with providing services that meet educational mandates, their professional scope of practice, and the current evidence base. School-based speech-language services that are truly aligned with federal and state educational mandates are a significant departure from a traditional clinical approach to assessment and intervention. This course provides a conceptual framework for integrating these mandates into an effective speech-language program and discusses strategies and tools for successful implementation. It also serves as the springboard for more in-depth exploration of critical issues in the courses offered throughout this track.

In order to design and implement educationally relevant assessments and interventions, school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) must engage in effective collaboration with classroom teachers and other colleagues. However, the complexities of the school setting and the lack of adequate training in collaborative approaches result in a range of challenges and barriers to realizing the potential benefits for students, teachers, and SLPs. This course examines several models of collaboration and when to use them, and provides strategies and tools for successful collaborative interactions.

Balancing & Scheduling Speech-Language Workloads in Schools

Presented by Kathleen Whitmire, PhD, CCC-SLP (Retired), BCS-CL (Retired), FASHA

Balancing & Scheduling Speech-Language Workloads in Schools

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Educationally relevant assessments and interventions require that school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) provide both direct and indirect services with and on behalf of students, including various models of collaboration with classroom teachers and other colleagues. However, SLPs' schedules continue to be filled with direct pull-out therapy with small groups, blocking them from engaging in a fuller range of services and activities. This course presents strategies for thinking in terms of your workload rather than caseload, allowing you to schedule a wider array of activities within the school day.
