Speech-Language Services

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) in the education setting work with learners who have a variety of communication needs, generally related to articulation, language, voice, fluency and early literacy. Speech-language pathologists also support learners who have complex communication needs associated with disabilities such as autism, physical impairment and head injury.

Several options are available for service delivery so that the learner’s individual needs are addressed. Service delivery options range from consultation with the learner’s educational team to one-to-one intervention. SLPs work closely with teachers to support aligning goals with the Iowa Core, enrich communication development in the classroom and work with the local school district to provide in-service training on communication-related topics.
