School District #6
Speech Language Pathology

Purpose
The speech-language pathology services in a school district may include a full range of services encompassing prevention, identification and assessment, direct instruction for students (individually, in classroom settings, or in small groups as appropriate), consultation, collaboration with other educators regarding the student's needs in the classroom and other school environments, inservice training, information sharing with families and other service providers and public education.
 
Any student with delayed, disordered or atypical speech and/or language skills should be brought to the attention of the speech-language pathologist.

Description of Services
Speech-language pathologists should use both formal and informal measures to evaluate a student's abilities relative to established norms, school expectations, the classroom environment and the student's needs. A variety of standardized measures should be used in conjunction with samples of behaviour taken from the school context, observations of students and/or interviews with the student, parent/guardian and relevant others. The information obtained should be related to other assessment/planning activities undertaken as part of the learner's educational program.

Case load priorities go to students identified with the Kindergarten oral language screen, students with significant communication delays, and students requiring assistive communication technology.
