The LPS Speech and Language Department is made up of licensed, board-certified speech and language pathologists. Our focus on communication disorders allows us to address a variety of deficits that affect oral, written and social language, as well as disorders in oral motor production, articulation, voice and central auditory processing disorders.
Treatment for students in Elementary and Middle Schools involve direct weekly pull-out services so that individual goals can be addressed in a clinical, therapeutic setting.
Treatment for students in High School receive intervention either through small group services or through push-in services. For 9th graders, services are integrated into Literature/Language Arts class. This interdisciplinary intervention model allows pathologists to assist students in developing and applying oral and written language strategies directly to content area subjects. High School students may be scheduled for individual Speech/Language Services, as specified by their IEP.
