Influencing SLP Services in Secondary Schools
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
The structures of middle and high schools, including the curricula, create unique challenges for SLPs who provide services to adolescents with weak language skills. In this session, we’ll identify some of the challenges and barriers to services and propose strategies SLPs can implement to influence the secondary educational context to address the language and literacy concerns of these adolescents.
You will be able to:
- identify characteristics of middle and high school that differ from elementary school and how those characteristics can frustrate provision of services for students
- describe professional and policy issues that can create challenges for SLP services for adolescents who struggle with language and literacy
- identify strategies SLPs can use to influence how they provide services to adolescents
