As the local government looks for ways
As the local government looks for ways to progress the quality of special educational services and embrace the importance of the varying levels of special needs, I write proposing an improvement in career options in the classroom, through that of the school based Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). The classroom teacher does a remarkable job managing, controlling, organizing and identifying differing level of student ability daily with the many challenges of keeping a balance. When faced with the inclusion of the child with special needs support from another profession would further complement and complete the teacher’s task. The collaboration with another professional helps to shape the life and future of the students which teachers engage daily.
As suggested by the writers in “Helping Children with Communication Disorder in Schools by the American Speech and Language Association (ASHA) – “The services of a Speech-language pathology are able to help children become thriving communicators problem-solvers and decision-makers. As a result of these interventions such as memory retraining, cognitive restructuring, language enhancement, and efforts to improve abstract thinking, children can benefit from a more successful and satisfying educational experience as well as improved peer relationships. The interventions provided by the speech-language pathologists can assist children rise above any disabilities, enhance self-esteem, and discover significant roles in their lives.” ?
