Speech-Language Pathology, Service Delivery Model, Inclusive Model, Traditional Model


This research explored various factors school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) may consider when deciding which service delivery models to implement. An online cross-sectional quantitative survey was sent, nationwide, to currently employed school-based SLPs. A second round of surveys was provided to SLPs at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention. A third round of surveys was submitted to the Special Interest Group (SIG) 16: School-Based Issues. The survey was divided into three parts: Demographics, Caseload, and Workplace Characteristics. Responses were collected and analyzed using descriptive analysis to identify attitudes and current practices.
