Reading, Language, Speech?
By Pam Marshalla
Q: I am an SLP in the schools. Often I am asked to address writing as a language goal. What are your thoughts regarding writing as a language goal?
Grrrrrr! We are not “Writing-Language Pathologists,” or “Reading-Language Pathologists,” or “Literacy-Language Pathologists.”
We are SPEECH-language pathologists!
I hope I was not unclear in this response.
