Public school speech-language pathologists often struggle to find appropriate service models. I have had the opportunity to work with a dynamic team of professionals during the initial year of a program designed to meet the specific needs of students with autism spectrum disorders. The team-based program currently services 5 students in grades 1-3.
Three of the students are in a first grade class with a teacher and a teaching assistant. There are 19 children in the class. Support services include an in class social work group, speech-language therapy, oc-cupational therapy, educational support, and consultative psychological support.
Language therapy was designed around the needs of the three students. They function at various academic and social skill levels. All three students receive one in-class session per week that the entire class participates in. One student also receives a pullout session using a reverse mainstreaming model.
