This course shares a framework for collaboration and consultation that school-based SLPs can use to support young students in their natural learning environments. The course examines the benefits of developing collaborative relationships with parents, teachers, and other professionals—as well as the importance using culturally responsive practices when engaged in consultation and collaboration—to improve student outcomes. The speaker shares practical ideas that SLPs can use right away in early childhood and elementary classroom environments.
