    What is my role?

    Speech-language pathologists must be able to listen to and communicate with their patient in order to determine the right course of treatment.

    The collaborative role of SLPs in schools is to work with teachers, other professionals and parents to meet the learners' needs. SLPs have to explore and find ways to collaborate with parents and include them as partners to work towards improving language development and/or other communication problems.
