Speech/Language Pathologists (SLPs)

The role of the SLPs is to evaluate the speech and language skills of students at MSK and provide speech and language therapy and/or educational instruction and interventions in the classroom in English. Articulation concerns are addressed in both English and Arabic therapy. As needed, students will receive therapy outside the classroom in 1:1 therapy sessions. The SLPs act as consultants in the classroom, working with the teacher to develop interventions to assist students with language development and processing. With their assistance, the teacher is able to utilize the modifications developed within the classroom on an ongoing basis. Our SLPs provide consultative services to staff of MSK as pertains to the needs of the students. The SLPs provide training and workshops in English and in Arabic to staff as needed in articulation, auditory processing, language development and other areas that affect a student’s ability to communicate. The therapy design was changed to a case management format, in which specialists work closely with teachers in supporting individual students’ needs in the classroom in addition to the option for sessions in the therapy room.
