The demand for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) is on the rise due to the ongoing increase in referrals, caseload sizes and in the complexity of communication impairments. The speech-language pathologist shortage is especially apparent in the school setting. One of the ways that the SLP shortage can be addressed is through the appropriate use of speech-language pathology assistants (SLPAs). Hear successful ways other districts have utilized SLPAs and how they have enhanced the delivery of speech and language services and have helped to keep districts in compliance with the IEP.
