Summary

Nearly 55% of ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists work in school settings. The numbers are even higher when non-ASHA certified pathologists are considered. There are only a few resources that address service delivery, as opposed to assessment or treatment of specific communication disorders. School Programs in Speech-Language Pathology is designed to provide both new and experienced practitioners with solutions and strategies for the challenges they face in the complex and ever-changing world of school-based delivery.Most books for school-based speech-language pathologists focus on different types of intervention and diagnoses. School Programs in Speech-Language Pathology focuses on service delivery, program design, and how to organize and manage an effective program. Additionally, this resource covers meeting state and national standards, following federal mandates, and how to relate to and communicate with colleagues and parents.The organization, questions at the end of each chapter, real-life examples, collaborative strategies, research foundation, and usable forms all make this book very practical for university students, existing school-based practitioners, and program administrators.Building on the success of previous editions, this fifth edition will include more information on alternative delivery methods and flexible schedule modules, reporting and documentation, state standards, telepractice, evidence-based practice, school-based leadership and career development, and an expansion of the information on the school-based clinician's role and contributions to the education team.

Author Biography

Jean L. Blosser, Ed.D., CCC-SLP, has been passionate about providing speech-language services to children with communication disabilities since she worked with her first client at Ohio University, where she received her BS in Hearing and Speech Sciences. Her focus on innovative approaches to service delivery was strengthened as she simultaneously worked as a school speech pathologist while completing her ma in Speech Pathology from Kent State University. Early in her career Jean initiated the first speech and hearing program in a district in the Akron area. The experience of starting a program from the ground floor set the tone for her career as an SLP, innovator, writer, and leader in school-based services.
