Speech and Language Therapy is a special education program that is available to students who have difficulties with communication skills that are adversely affecting their educational progress. Communication difficulties can be in the areas of articulation, language, fluency, and/or voice. Through teacher and parent referrals, students are screened to determine if a difficulty exists. If appropriate, speech and language evaluations are then conducted. If the student meets school district criteria, services will be implemented. Speech Therapy services are based on a student's individual needs and those needs are met through a combination of consultative, integrated and direct service models.
