Speech-Language Pathology at SLPath
Dear Colleagues and Families,
Welcome to SLPath. Our goal is to enable speech-language pathologists of all educational backgrounds to apply current, research-based treatment to their caseloads.
Given the spectrum of communication disorders and the growing research body devoted to them, there is a clear need for proven, evidence-based techniques to be featured in high quality professional development. At SLPath, we provide the bridge between research and practice. We recognize that many SLPs struggle to find time to cover their caseloads while staying current with the research literature. By creating and sharing resources based on current findings, we enable SLPs to provide the treatment techniques proven to be most effective, thereby increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment.
Our continuously growing web site includes assessment tools, treatment ideas, homework sheets, research summaries and links to other online resources. For the past six years, we have offered resources to support best practices in phonological and articulation treatment. Recently, information has also been added for preschool language development and service delivery models. SLPs can access PowerPoint modules to educate families and teachers, developmental guides, and checklists for assessment and intervention as well.
We hope that you find this web site to be valuable and that our resources support you as your students become more effective communicators. If you have suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for visiting and for all that you do to advocate for children.
Jennifer Taps Richard, M.A., CCC-SLP
