Speech and Language Therapy

The Speech and Language Therapy Program provides screening, diagnosis, and remediation to school-age children throughout Douglas County. Students served have significant articulation, stuttering, voice or specific language disorders. Classroom consultation and collaboration is often provided to facilitate carry-over of speech/language goals throughout the school day. Audiological screenings are also provided by pathologists. Douglas ESD pathologists are state certified (TSPC) speech and language pathologists, many of whom are also certified by the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA). Seventeen speech/language pathologists serve the 49 public schools in Douglas County on an itinerant basis. Students from private and parochial schools in the county, who are eligible for services, receive regularly scheduled therapy at a nearby public school facility.
