Speech and Language services are provided by the speech therapist for students for the following:

• articulation (intelligibility, formulating sounds)

• fluency (flow of speech)

• voice (pitch, loudness, hoarseness)

• delayed receptive and expressive language (short, simple sentences or lack of complete organized thought, impaired language comprehension, formulation word recall or use)

• auditory functioning (retaining processing, understanding and reasoning)

The presence of any of these problems constitutes a referral.
