Teaching Channel Talks Episode 83: What Every Teacher Should Know About Speech Pathology (w/Lisa Geary)

In this engaging episode of Teaching Channel Talks, we’re joined by Lisa Geary, an award-winning speech-language pathologist, to discuss the importance of collaboration between teachers and speech-language pathologists (SLPs). By exploring ways in which teachers can partner with SLPs, this conversation provides insight into practical approaches that educators can seamlessly integrate into their classrooms to enhance communication among students and support students with speech and language challenges. Using the strategies discussed, we can create more inclusive and effective learning environments for every student!
