School Speech Services Q & A

What are school speech services?

School speech services refer to speech therapy for school-aged children. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) says school-aged children with developmental disabilities are entitled to a free public education that includes any necessary services like speech therapy to treat delays in speech and language. 

Strategies for Success provides specialized speech therapy for people of all ages, including children and teens, including school speech services.

What do school speech services include?

Strategies for Success offers a wide range of school speech services. These include:


Speech therapy screenings are a quick assessment of your child's speaking and language skills. Results from a screening may determine if your child needs additional testing and assessment.

Testing and assessments

Strategies for Success uses standardized tests to assess your child’s speech, language, and communication skills. These tests may provide a diagnosis that explains your child’s speech delay and determine the best course of treatment.

Group language therapy

Group language therapy includes two or more students participating in various speech therapy activities to improve language skills. These sessions give children a chance to practice with their peers.

Social Thinking Program®

The Social Thinking Program uses evidence-based strategies to help school-aged children and teens think during social situations. Developing social thinking skills helps children figure out how to interact with others — reducing anxiety in social situations. 

Social language

With social language, the team at Strategies for Success teaches kids different ways to use language, how to change language to match your listener, and how to follow the rules of conversing.

Individual or small group speech therapy

Strategies for Success does individual and small group speech therapy sessions for schools.
