The roles and responsibilities of school-based speech-language pathologists have changed dramatically in recent years due to legislation, regulation, and professional expectations. These changes have presented significant challenges to both program administrators and supervisors of speech-language pathologists who are providing services to children in educational settings. As a result, development of relevant training programs and supervision of speech-language pathologists have become increasingly complex and demanding.
Program administrators and supervisors must continue striving to ensure compliance with mandated legislation and regulations, while supporting the professional growth and development of school-based speech-language pathologists. Becoming familiar with current federal statutes, as well as state and local policies and procedures, becomes imperative. ASHA’s policies are also a strong influence when making clinical decisions, and supervisors should encourage clinician familiarity with ASHA’s Code of Ethics (ASHA, 2003).
