Speech and Language Pathologists

Speech and language pathologists (SLPs) are trained to evaluate and remediate speech and language disorders and delays in children and adults. In the state of Connecticut, SLPs must be licensed by the state and earn a Master’s Degree in order to practice in the public schools or other settings.

The speech and language pathologist is an essential member of the educational team. The primary responsibilities of the SLP include identification, assessment, evaluation, determination of program eligibility, development of IEPs, caseload management, intervention, documentation, transitioning, and dismissal for students with language, articulation/phonology, fluency, and voice/resonance disorders. The SLPs' expertise in the areas of speech and language development allows them to provide classroom teachers and other members of the educational team with assistance in a variety of curricular areas.
