Speech language pathologists are trained professionals who work to identify, assess, evaluate, refer, and to provide therapy for individuals who have articulation, voice, fluency, expressive language, receptive language, and related disorders.

Speech language pathologists in the public school setting work to remediate communication disorders that affect how a student will perform in school-related activities, including social interaction, functional skills, and academics.

At LAUREL, students receive speech services either in an individual session or in a group setting. Both individual and group sessions can occur in the classroom or in the speech therapy room. The service model is determined by the IEP committee.
