Speech Language Services

Williamson County Special Education employs speech language pathologists that focus on the communication needs of students residing in any of the five member school districts in Williamson County. The goal of the school-based speech language pathologist is to re-mediate or alleviate student communication problems within the educational environment. They may address such areas as articulation, fluency, voice, language, and swallowing impairments for the purpose of developing or improving the use of functional communication skills. Ultimately, the purpose of the school-based speech language pathologist is to facilitate functional and measurable change in a student's communication so that the student may participate as fully as possible in educational, social, or vocational settings. For additional information regarding speech language services in the schools, contact Kelli Hunter, Lead Pathologist, at 618-993-8534 or khunter@marionunit2.org.
