Speech and Language

Speech therapy services are available to all programs within the Collaborative and its member school districts based on student need and documentation within the IEP. Speech services include evaluation, consultation and direct treatment in the areas of expressive and receptive language, alternative/augmentative communication and pragmatic language.

Augmentative and alternate communication (AAC) is an area of clinical practice that attempts to compensate either temporarily or permanently for the impairment and disability patterns of individuals with severe and expressive communication disorders.
