On campus, the role is defined as the communication specialist providing services that include case management, collaboration with parents, teachers, and other required persons, comprehensive evaluation, intervention and remediation of communication disorders for identified students, and report writing.
Denton ISD provides speech-language services to children 3-22 years of age who are considered to demonstrate "speech impairment."
Speech Impairment means a communication disorder, such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a language impairment, or voice impairment that adversely affects a child's educational performance and needs the services of a Speech–Language Pathologist.
Note: During a school closure for extended time away from school special education services will continue to be provided virtually as determined by the student's ARD committee.
