The responsibilities of the speech department include indentifying and treating students with articulation and language disorders. Treatment locale includes both the students' classrooms and the actual speech therapy rooms. Type of therapy varies with student need and can include: articulation therapy, language therapy, processing, social skills, phonological and phonemic awareness, and oral motor/coordination.RTI-Response to Intervention is a general education initiative designed to target difficulties with articulation and language before the IEP (special education) process. RTI includes a pre-set time of data collection and intervention with either teacher or speech pathologist and the parent. Children are identified and recommended to RTI through the Kindergarten and first grade mass screenings. Older children are identified through the SST process. For more information regarding RTI please contact one of our Speech-Language Pathologists.
