Students who qualify for Special Education may receive speech and language therapy to address communication deficits that adversely affect educational performance.  Speech and language therapy is concerned with the identification and treatment of speech, language, and communication.  When appropriate goals are written to address articulation, fluency, voice, and receptive/ expressive language. The speech and language therapist supports students in learning to speak, listen, and use language effectively.  

A speech and language therapist is a trained professional who has earned a Master’s or Doctoral Degree in Communicative Disorders, holds a Clinical Certificate of Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association; and holds a state license and/ or a Department of Education certification.
