In the state of Kansas, students may receive speech-language services as a student with a Speech Language Impairment, or as a related service to help a student benefit from their special education program. The goal of public school speech-language pathology services is to remediate or improve a student's communication disorder so it does not interfere with or deter academic achievement and functional performance. Speech-Language Pathologists are active and integral members of school special education teams and provide services in a variety of ways, including staff support, consultation, and direct instruction both in and out of classrooms. Speech-language services in schools are provided when a student’s educational and academic experience has been significantly impacted by their communication deficits.

Marshall-Nemaha Special Services Cooperative provides speech-language services to a diverse population of students. SLPs work collaboratively with staff members and parents to support-

• and determine the speech and language needs of English Language Learners

• minimally verbal students to find alternative means of communication

• learning disabilities

• phonological and articulation disorders

• intellectual disabilities

• students with autism and developmental delays

• students with motor deficits

• students who are Deaf and hard of hearing
