Speech-language services in the schools

    Speech-language services in the schools

    Speech-language pathology services in the schools were more like these programs: - ESOL (English Speakers of another Language) where the entrance is based on the home language survey and parents have to come in only to sign if they don't want their child to receive services. It is state and federally regulated by OCR. Reading Recovery where first-grade children are seen one-on-one for a specified number of weeks and pre and post-tests are given. It continues in many schools, even though it is considered to be very expensive for the number of children it can serve.

     
    IN OTHER WORDS, DO WE NEED TO SIMPLIFY OUR PROFESSION IN THE SCHOOLS? Do you think we have: 

     
    A. Lost our way in the school system and lost our mission 
    B. Lack of poor leadership at the state and national level has resulted in programs that try to appease too many constituents 
    C. It's our own fault for ending up in this mess 
    D. All of the above.
