School based clinicians are charged with assisting students with their language skills needed to fully access their educational environments, whether the student has been identified with a language disorder or not. Federal law requires the SLP to offer Response to Intervention Assistance to classroom teachers, when students are found to be struggling, long before they are sometimes identified with a language disorder. This session will look at how evidence-based practices can easily be incorporated into the classroom environment to assist struggling students, even when not officially on caseload.
