Speech and Language Services

  • What are Speech and Language Services?

    The development of age-appropriate speech and language skills is essential to the learning process and to a student's social, emotional, and academic growth.  Students must be able to comprehend language, express their thoughts and opinions, interact effectively and efficiently with peers and adults, and produce speech which others can easily understand.  The Haddon Township School District provides speech and language services to students ages 3-21 who demonstrate a need to improve their speech and language skills in articulation, language, fluency, or voice disorder in order to achieve academic progress.

    How are students referred for speech and language services?

    Students can be referred for speech and language services by their parents or their classroom teacher if there is concern about a student's speech and language proficiency as part of a Child Study Team Evaluation, or in isolation.  The goal of these services is to help students develop the speech and language skills necessary for positive interpersonal relationships and academic progress. 

    Once a referral is made, a Speech and Language therapist will contact parents and team members to conduct an identification meeting.  Please refer to the "referral process" section of this website for more detailed information.
