School Speech-Language Pathologists
School-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are responsible for speech and language disorder prevention, assessment, intervention, 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.
Technical Assistance and Supports
The speech and language consultant at Oakland Schools provides guidance and technical assistance for local school district speech-language pathologists to assist in closing the achievement gap between students with and without IEPs.
Our continuum of opportunities is designed to engage school-based SLPs in sustained and collaborative professional learning around areas of professional inquiry, targeted continuous improvement, and school or district goals.
Please contact Diane Katakowski for a listing of planned 2019-20 professional learning opportunities that are relevant to the work of school speech-pathologists.
