School Speech-Language Pathologists

School-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are responsible for speech and language disorder prevention, assessment, int​​ervention, program design, data collection and analysis, and compliance activities.

They have integral roles in education​ and are essential members of school faculties, working with families​, students, school personnel, and other professionals. Oakland Schools supports school speech-language pathologists in their ability to improve student achievement and engagement in order to close achievement gaps that exist ​between students with and without IEPs.
