May is Speech and Hearing Month
Speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) are essential members of education teams, supporting the more than 10% of children with speech, language and communication challenges. S-LPs promote an inclusive learning environment that is beneficial for all students. Speech-language pathology services support academic success, as well as the social and emotional well-being of students.
The contributions of S-LPs differ from and complement the roles of other educational professionals. S-LPs have distinct expertise in developing oral and written language, supporting successful learning and helping students make social connections in and out of the classroom.
If you have concerns about your child’s speech, language or communication skills, contact your school’s Learning Support Teacher to see how to get in touch with one of our S-LPs.
