As a building principal for many years, I had the pleasure of working with many classroom teachers and special area teachers. There was not a day that went by that I didn’t learn something from one of them! One group of teachers that I found to be an amazing source of information was the Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs). Our SLPs were exceptionally helpful in our school’s Response to Intervention (RTI) process. As part of our RTI process, they worked to find different ways to include language interventions to strengthen student skills. Collaborating with classroom teachers they were able to explain a child’s limitations based on testing and suggested interventions. Partnering with parents they explained test scores, program recommendations and shared progress reports.
Thank you, Holly and Connie!
The 2 sites below are good resources to support teachers, parents and caregivers looking for information on any speech concerns. Both are active sites with the Main Page having multiple links and search engines to ask specific questions.
