The school speech language pathologist (SLP) has specialist skills to undertake differential diagnostic assessments regarding the nature of the student's speech language communication difficulties. This includes,
but is not limited to, oral language, literacy, phonological awareness, speech and articulation, stuttering, and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) skills. The SLP sees students across all year levels, both with and without verifications, based on the school priorities.
The SLP works to support inclusive education through collaboration with the school team to identify and assess student needs and plan and design differentiated strategies that support students with speech language communication difficulties.
The SLP has been working at Robertson State School since April 2018, two days each week and works across whole school, small group and 1:1 program to ensure students with speech language communication needs are able to access the curriculum and achieve their goals.
