Hello, I'm a school based SLP. I'm currently assessing a 6 yo student ,who seems to have a nasal emission on almost all consonant sounds. I suspect VPI / ? Sub mucous cleft. What is the scope of speech therapy to address this issue within the school setting ?.
Here is a brief background info. This student was initially screened by a school SLP in fall 2011, and the SLP had directed the parent to seek medical opinion. His PCP referred him back to the school therapist and wrote a "prescription for speech therapy" . Now, he is being assessed per doctor's note.
I would love to refer him to a craniofacial team , but the factors like health insurance,PCP referral etc., are involved. I would really like to help that student but unclear about the ways to help him. Your input is appreciated ! .Thank you.
