       A Speech-Language Pathologist can assess, diagnose, and provide therapy to students who have difficulties understanding spoken and written language, using spoken and written language, producing clear or fluent speech, using appropriate social communication skills, and much more. Speech-Language Pathologists can support students in the classroom by teaching and providing strategies/tools to improve active listening skills, vocabulary knowledge, early literacy skills such as rhyming, reading comprehension, writing skills, production of specific speech sounds, and use visuals or direct teaching of social skills to support students' interactions with their peers and adults. Speech-Language Pathologists are trained to use creativity, flexibility, and research based methods to help their students gain the confidence they need to understand and use language with success to the best of their ability in and out of the classroom.
