WHAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SPEECH / LANGUAGE SPECIALIST?
The Speech and Language Specialist assesses a student’s communication abilities. This may include evaluation in the areas of articulation, phonology, fluency, and/or voice. Deficits in the above noted areas must be unrelated to dialect, cultural difference or the influence of a foreign language adversely affecting a student’s educational performance. The SLP will determine if a student is eligible for speech-language services.
