As a school district, the primary goal is to see that your students succeed. Ensuring your students have the appropriate and necessary services is certainly a key component and our Bilingual Therapies team is here to help you by providing top notch professionals to achieve those goals. For students with speech and language disorders, one necessary professional is a speech-language pathologist (SLP). In areas with a growing multicultural community, having a bilingual SLP allows the district to complete evaluations in a student’s native language, as required by federal law and can reduce overidentification. Once these students have been identified for services, the bilingual SLP can support bilingual and English language learners with the intervention they need to meet their speech and language goals. At Bilingual Therapies, we are here to help you serve your students with the crucial resources they need with qualified bilingual SLPs.Read More »
