SAC Shining Lights: S-LP Schools Podcast

Speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) are essential members of educational teams supporting students of all ages with speech, language, and communication challenges to achieve their academic and personal potential. Many speech-language pathologists in Canada are employed in schools. Their job is to support children with communication disabilities in accessing the curriculum and achieving their academic and personal potential. In this new podcast series from Speech-Language and Audiology Canada, Dr. Lisa Archibald from the University of Western Ontario and our expert guests will discuss innovation in school-based speech-language pathology.

In the sixth episode of SAC Shining Lights: School-based S-LP Podcast, Dr. Archibald is joined by Lisa Kohel and Lyndsay Bourdeau, private practitioners who support both schools and school divisions in Alberta. Lisa and Lyndsay discuss their experiences developing services in and with schools, and their work with educators.
