Speech and language services are those services provided by speech and language pathologists within a multidisciplinary framework designed to support students whose education is adversely affected by oral communication challenges.
Speech and language services include a full range of K-7 supports encompassing prevention, identification and assessment, direct instruction for students (individually, in classroom settings, or in small groups as appropriate), consultation, collaboration with educators and support staff regarding the student's needs in the classroom and other school environments, in-service training, and information sharing with families and other agencies.

- Being an active member of the school-based team to assist with problem solving, and program planning;
- Utilizing both formal and informal measures to evaluate a student's abilities relative to established norms, school expectations, the classroom environment and the student's needs. The information obtained is related to other assessment/planning activities undertaken as part of the student's educational program within the district’s response to intervention (RTI) framework;
- Providing support(s) within the RTI tiered model while focusing efforts within the classroom environment and ensuring that all tier 2 work is generalized to the tier 1 environment;
