As communication professionals we effectively work with partners and in teams with professionals in other disciplines (e.g., physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, nutrition, teachers). Through this collaboration, we can better meet the needs of our consumers with communication impairments. Our collaboration, however, is often workplace specific. It seems that we are less often collaborating with our fellow speech-language pathologists across work settings. This lack of communication between speech-language pathologists in education and non-education settings can often be a disservice to the consumer and to one another.
Anne Biggins, a supervisor of speech-language programs in Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia, offers a description of the role and responsibilities of speech-language pathologists and our education partners in the development of effective oral communication skills. This column can become a first step toward improving communication among speech-language pathologists in different settings.
