A Guide to School Services in Speech-Language Pathology, Fourth Edition serves as a comprehensive textbook for school-based speech-language pathology (SLP) courses and college students who are ready to embark on their student teaching experiences. With its summaries of cutting-edge research, evidence-based clinical approaches, workload solutions, and strategies for professionalism, the book is also a useful resource for practicing, school-based SLPs.

The text begins by providing a brief history of school-based SLP services. It highlights the legal mandates set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act; provides a review of the No Child Left Behind Act; offers new information about the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act; and summarizes court cases that have influenced and shaped school services. Then, the text delves into a description of service delivery models; provides valuable information about a workload analysis approach to caseload standards in schools; offers examples of how to write IEPs that reflect workload solutions; shares examples of implementation strategies; and offers concrete, real-life workload success stories. In addition, this text provides practical strategies for using evidence-based practice, proactive behavior management, conflict resolution, professional collaboration, conferencing and counseling skills, cultural competencies, goal writing, informal assessment procedures, and testing accommodations, including methods for conducting assessments for dual language learners. The final chapter provides the evidence base for links between language, literacy, and the achievement of school standards. This chapter is a must-read for every school SLP.
