    Speech-language pathologists combine students' communication goals with academic and social goals by integrating classroom objectives into speech and language activities.  Speech-language pathologists help children understand and use basic language concepts related to classroom learning to become good readers and writers and to understand lessons and texts. 
    Speech-language services may be offered in a variety of ways, depending on the student's needs.  Some typical options for service are:
     
    • Monitoring or periodically screening the student's speech and language skills;
       
    • Collaboration and consulting with parents, teachers, and colleagues about a student's communication and learning;
       
    • Classroom-based services; and
       
    • Small group or inidividual sessions
