• Speech-Language Therapy
    Our Early Childhood Special Education program provides speech and language services to students who qualify during the IEP process.  The services include, but are not limited to, the following:
       -  articulation
       -  receptive language
       -  expressive language
       -  fluency
       -  voice
       -  swallowing  
    Children qualify for speech-language services through the evaluation process and may qualify for a variety of service models.  At Columbia Public Schools, we are able to provide services in a variety of ways depending on the qualifications and needs of individual students.  Some therapists travel to homes, daycare centers, and preschools within the community, some provide itinerant services at a district location, and others are center based and provide services within specially designed early childhood education classrooms.  The speech language pathologists are able to incorporate a variety of communication modalities including but not limited to:  picture exchange, visual communication boards, speech output device, and sign language.
