Speech-Language Pathology Home

  • Speech-Language Pathologists in the public schools serve students with speech and/or language impairments.  A speech or language impairment is defined as “a communication disorder, such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a language impairment, or a voice impairment, that adversely affects a child’s educational performance” (C.F.R. §300.8.).  Speech-Language Pathologists in the public schools serve various roles in supporting students with speech and language impairments, including evaluation, IEP development, and intervention. 

    ESC Region 11 strives to maintain a program of staff development and technical assistance to assist Speech-Language Pathologists in the diagnosis of speech and language impairments and the provision of services based on current research, within the framework of federal and state regulations.
