Speech and Language Disorders
What is the process to get a student referred, evaluated and into speech therapy?
Speech language therapy sessions are scheduled throughout the week and are provided in various ways depending on a student's individual needs. Some students do receive traditional pull out speech and language services while other students are serviced within the mainstream classroom setting. In order for a student to receive speech or language services within the Middle School, their difficulties with speech or language skills need to impact on their classroom and academic performance. Once a student does qualify for this service, his or her schedule is established. Please be aware that Middle School students are never pulled out of mainstream classroom situations in order to receive speech and language services.
