Speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) are essential members of educational teams as they support students of all ages with speech, language and communication challenges to achieve their academic and personal potential.

S-LPs, often supported by communication health assistants, provide individualized services to students of all ages with speech, language, social communication, literacy, cognitive and swallowing impairments. They enhance academic, social, vocational and emotional outcomes by facilitating student access, participation and inclusion in the curriculum, as well as in the broader school environment.
