Speech-Language Pathologists in Schools


SAC has created this toolkit to assist speech-language pathologists working in school settings.

In addition to providing guidance to speech-language pathologists, the professional resource tools can serve as a roadmap for new collaborations with diverse members of school teams (e.g., teachers, education assistants, special education professionals), or as discussion points for a change in direction within an ongoing collaboration. The advocacy tools can help inform service delivery planning discussions with administrators and other stakeholders. We will continue to add to this toolkit as resources become available.
