Back to School: Why the Speech-Language Pathologist Belongs in the Classroom

By spending time in a middle school classroom, we realize that to succeed in school, a sixth-grade child with a language disorder must be assisted to use and understand complex syntax and literate vocabulary; to learn new information through listening and reading; and to demonstrate knowledge through speaking and writing. Practical information such as this is invaluable in establishing functional goals for language intervention, thereby helping the child to realize his academic potential and to have reasonable options in life. Assisting children in this way also offers long-term benefits to society, helping to build a workforce of competent young adults who can give back to their communities through productive and stable employment.
