Speech and Language Pathology

Finding and fostering each student's voice allows them to begin to express what's going on inside.

Confident Communicators

The speech-language pathologists support Summit school students to become competent and confident communicators. We also provide support to teachers and families through various modes of intervention which include consultation, home programs, assessment, classroom groups and classroom-integrated therapy.

We aim for each child to be able to communicate independently, developing skills ranging from requesting help to having a full conversation, depending on their capacity.

While most of our students express themselves verbally, some might need the support of signs, gestures, pictures and electronic devices.
