36 Reviews

1 Hour  

This presentation examines an SLP's journey in delivering services in the classroom via a team-teaching model with a special educator and a regular educator over the course of a school year. This is a qualitative, 7-month longitudinal case-study of the SLP's roles, routines, and perceptions as a collaborative partner in inclusive service delivery. The results of the collaborative discourse that emerged are discussed. Practical implications related to the the types of discourse patterns that facilitated successful collaborations will be highlighted. Simple collaboration strategies such as asking clarification questions and learning how to negotiate the suggestions of other professionals will be highlighted.
