The Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) play an important role in remediating and teaching the children how to use compensatory strategies. Pull-out therapy, consultation, and guiding staff regarding listening/auditory skills and appropriate remedial materials are some of the many responsibilities of the SLP. Individual or group therapy is provided, and its frequency is based on the unique needs of each child.
Hearing screening is completed at the beginning of the school year for all new students and, if necessary, a referral is made to the child’s doctor.
Therapy services include: articulation, receptive and/or expressive language, social-verbal (pragmatics), stuttering/fluency, voice, auditory habilitation for the hearing impaired, and Auditory Processing Disorders (APD).
Additional speech/language trained faculty are full-time classroom teachers and Division Heads.
