This learning module has been developed with support from the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) for administrators and school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) interested in clarifying the roles of speech-language pathology assistants and aides (SLPAs) in their schools.
SLPAs can supplement the delivery of speech and language services in schools and have a positive impact on students’ communication skills. This professional learning module describes the scope of tasks and activities appropriate for SLPA implementation in Connecticut schools, as well as the types and frequency of supervision required. It also addresses the benefits and challenges of using SLPAs by determining the viability of their use and analyzing cost effectiveness.
This guided learning module has optional audio narration, and 3 downloadable activities.
