What is a Speech Language Pathologist?
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are professionals who are responsible for evaluating and treating children with challenges in speech and language.
Speech and language skills are essential to academic success and learning. Learning takes place through the process of communication and the ability to communicate with peers and adults in the educational setting is important in order to achieve success. Some children who are experiencing problems with reading, writing, gesturing, listening, or speaking at school, may have a speech-language disorder. Some examples of these disorders include:
Speech Language Pathologists are required to have a Master’s Degree and an Educational Staff Associate state certificate. Most of the Speech-Language Pathologists in the Issaquah School District are also members of our professional organization, the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). Membership in ASHA requires an additional year of supervised clinical practice beyond the master’s degree. To maintain our credentials SLPs take continuing education classes.
