SBSL Pathologist Study for Children from Low Socioeconomic Status 

Please participate in a research study to examine and illustrate evaluation practices, attitudes, and beliefs of school-based speech language pathologists evaluating children from low socioeconomic environments for suspected developmental language disorder. You will receive no direct benefits from participating in this research study. However, your responses may help us learn more about assessment practices of school-based speech-language pathologists.  The research study is being conducted by Joy Vivian, MEd CCC-SLP, a student at Valdosta State University.

GO SSLP Stands in Solidarity for Equality 

The Georgia Organization of School Based SLPs (GO SSLP) provides professional support, public awareness, and opportunities for professional growth by being an advocate for Georgia’s school-based SLPs and ALL of the students they serve. GO SSLP believes the mission of SLPs is to assist students in finding their voice. We make a difference for children from a wide variety of backgrounds by helping them develop effective communication. We must continue to be sure that all voices are heard and valued by taking a stand in support of all who speak out against any form of discrimination.

GO SSLP stands with those who oppose racism, bigotry, and hatred in all forms and strongly support the Black Lives Matter movement. 

With that in mind, please join us as we use these summer months as an opportunity for professional development as well as self-reflection on how we can help to dismantle systemic racism. This work is difficult but necessary so that all of us can be recognized for our own unique gifts. Please feel free to reach out to us through the Executive Office if you would like to join us.

GO SSLP has prepared a list of books and other resources that relate to teaching a diverse group of students. You can find that resource here . If you have any additional resources you think would be beneficial to your colleagues, please send the information to the Executive Office for inclusion on this list! Let’s work together to make the world a better place.

Sincerely,

Dr. Patti Howard, GO SSLP President, Donna Fox, GO SSLP Vice President, & GO SSLP Executive Office
