Speech-Language Pathology

Mission Statement

The San Diego Unified School District Speech-Language Pathologists are dedicated to facilitating speech and language acquisition and development in all students and in particular those with communication disorders. Our purpose is to help students find their unique voices as they use language to think, learn, affirm their ideas, and develop social relationships.
We work collaboratively with and provide resources for administrators, teachers, parents, and special educators in their efforts to develop goals and instructional strategies that support academic achievement. We practice respectful, open communication that fosters creativity, welcomes new ideas, acknowledges individual talents and contributions, and promotes teamwork. Our commitment to continuing professional development strengthens our ability to advocate for our students and their families.
