Vision for School Speech Language Pathologists

The demands of 21st Century education dictate new roles for School Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs).  SLPs strive to create nurturing relationships with students that enhance academic achievement and personal success to pave the way for them to be globally productive citizens in the 21st Century.
Utilizing leadership, advocacy, and collaboration, school-based speech-language pathologists provide prevention, assessment, and remediation services for students who exhibit difficulties in the areas of language, speech, voice, and fluency.

These services are designed to help children meet their educational and personal goals.


School-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work with children and school staff in order to enhance students’ academic achievement and personal success through development of communication skills.

Our goal is to complement the role of educators in developing globally productive citizens, ready for the demands of the 21st century.

This mission requires partnerships with others in the forms of:
strong school administration
innovative staff collaboration
approachable and accessible teachers
motivated students
involved families.

It also requires a dynamic skill set that speech-language pathologists (SLPs) utilize in order to help students achieve skills needed to complete their social, educational, and vocational goals.
