SPEECH SERVICES & RESOURCES

Trumbull County Educational Service Center (TCESC) employs licensed Speech-Language Pathologists, who are trained to evaluate and treat speech and language disorders in children. Children displaying a variety of communication needs that affect their success in classroom speaking, writing, and learning activities may receive speech-language therapy services.


A Speech-Language Pathologist addresses language disabilities including vocabulary, grammar, and socialization; articulation disorders; dysfluency; voice disorders; oral-motor functioning; auditory memory and processing; hearing impairments; and assistive technology and augmentative communication devices.        


Speech Therapy services include:

  • Diagnostic services for preschool and school-aged children.

  • Parent and teacher education regarding student’s communicative needs.

  • Students who have speech/language/hearing disorders that adversely affect their progress in the classroom may be eligible for services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act). 

  • Development of Individual Education Plans for qualifying students under current federal and state regulations and local policies.

  • Collaboration with teachers and other school staff.  

  • Staff in-services about preventive measures and classroom strategies.

  • Outcomes documentation for students with communication disorders.

  • Response to Intervention services for children demonstrating at-risk communication concerns.
