Featured Question

What is ASHA's position on speech-language pathologists working on reading and writing skills with students?

The Position Statement: Roles and Responsibilities of Speech-Language Pathologists With Respect to Reading and Writing in Children and Adolescents states:

Speech-language pathologists play a critical and direct role in the development of literacy for children and adolescents with communication disorders, including those with severe or multiple disabilities. SLPs also make a contribution to the literacy efforts of a school district or community on behalf of other children and adolescents. These roles are implemented in collaboration with others who have expertise in the development of written language and vary with settings and experience of those involved.

In addition, ASHA offers several other policy documents within the Literacy Gateway, as well as journal and Leader articles, products and related websites on the topic.
