Integrating Speech Therapy in Special Education Classrooms
Integrated speech therapy can be a powerful tool for students with deficits in communication. This webinar focuses on strategies for speech therapists and teachers to collaboratively provide speech services in the classroom, both in-person and virtually. This collaboration reduces transition time which can cause undue stress on a student and increases productivity to help students and speech-language specialists make the most out of speech therapy sessions.
