Rose Stanley, SLP and Deena Bloom, Speech Para-Educator
Hello and Welcome to Bethel Manor,
The focus of school-based Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) is the communication abilities of students. SLPs work with students to improve, alleviate or remediate communication weaknesses in the educational setting.
SLPs work with students who have Individualized Education Plans (IEP) with Speech Language Impairment as the disability category or as a related service. Students may receive direct or indirect services using an integrated model. SLPs work closely with school staff to support academic goals and decrease any negative impact on education.
In addition, SLPs conduct child find duties for all students that are new to the division in Kindergarten through 3rd grade via new entrant screens. Screening in the areas of articulation, phonology, voice, fluency and language are conducted with parent contact for any students that do not pass.
Preschool students between the ages of two and five can also be referred for evaluations by Child Development Resources, Parents, Physicians, and Private Teachers if a disability is suspected.
Please reach out to a Bethel Manor Speech Language Pathologist if you have questions.
