speech-language therapist... any out there?

I have to ask a question to one for my school assignment...


This question has to do with communication disorders and learning disabilities.

what you could do to enhance the therapist's work with a student in your classroom.

I'm not a Speech/Language therapist, but my son has worked with several, some very good. I don't understand the question as posed - do the "you" "your" and "therapist" all refer to the S/LT?

Also, with clarification, you may find a better response by posting on the DIS Disabiliy - community board.

I'm a bit confused by the question as well.

I'm also not a SLP but my youngest DD has been getting ST for about 13 years now and my oldest DD is a Special Ed teacher.

I always discussed this with the SLP. S/he can give lots of ideas that are right for the particular child. Not all children need the same help!

Be familiar with the IEP for the student. Ask the therapist what goals she is concentrating on and emphasize those in your regular classroom when working with the student. It can be a two way street. Let her know what skills you are working on and she can tie them into her curriculum. I have degree in Special Ed. and presently work with Gifted students. My son has been in speech since before he was 3. He is now almost 9. The key word is collaboration to help enhance the needs of the student in all learning situations.

So has it been decided that the OP is wondering what 'teachers' can do?

I was a speech/language pathologist for 16 years before quitting to stay at home with my kids. Worked in all arenas with a variety of populations.

I'd say, as previously stated, that collaboration is the key. Too many therapists end up working in a bubble, through no fault of their own. And a therapist who works in a bubble is generally not very effective (progress made in that circumstance is often the result of factors unrelated to therapy).

Teachers need to be well versed on the therpists portion of the IEP - the goals and objective - and on how they can facilitate achievement of those goals/objs in the classroom. At the elementary level, opportunities for co-teaching should be sought out if at all possible. It is just so important for the therapist and teacher (and parent) to work closely as a team.
