Speech

Welcome to Our Speech Site

The Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) at Hunters Creek Elementary strengthens communication skills of students who need remediation in areas of articulation/phonology, fluency, voice, language and pragmatic skills.

Speech-Language Pathologists work with children who have communication impairments that affect their success in academic activities and social interactions.

The duties of a Speech-Language Pathologist include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Identifying and evaluating students with suspected speech, language, and related disorders
  • Planning and conducting activities to improve a student’s speaking, listening, and other language skills
  • Monitoring and documenting the effectiveness of treatment and student progress
  • Collaboratingwith parents, caregivers, teachers, and other professionals in understanding and meeting a student’s speech, language, and academic needs
  • Writingreports and completing other required paperwork
  • Educating parents, teachers, and administrators about communication development and disorders

 

Caseload considerations include:

  • Severity of the speech or language impairment
  • Effect of the problem on a student’s educational performance and  social skills
  • Developmental stage of the problem
  • Relationship of the impairment to other conditions (i.e., hearing loss, mental retardation, learning disabilities, physical or other health impairments)
  • Type of service: individual (specialized service), small group (specialized service), classroom-based (support facilitation), consultation, or various combinations of these therapy models
