Abstract

The Speech-Language Program of Orange County Public Schools (OCPS), Orlando, FL has provided ongoing intensive professional development and support to their speech-language pathologists to facilitate inclusive services for students who are identified as speech-language impaired. However, providing inclusive services in the general and special education classrooms often raises the question, “How should speech-language pathologists provide services in the classroom, focusing on classroom curriculum without becoming the reading teacher?” This article discusses how a speech-language pathologist differentiates his/her services from the responsibilities of the reading teacher.
