International School Speech-Language Pathology


We take the position here that school speech-language pathology is a separate discipline overlapping with hospital speech-language pathology. It is not just “another context” as many Americans believe. The educational context creates a different theory of communication and learning. School communication is a part of learning and disability is inter-related.

Welcome to friends in many countries, especially, South Africa, Colombia, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Australia, France and Ireland.

Welcome members of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics (IALP). I am happy to have delivered a paper at the IALP in Scotland.



Dire Straits Sultans Of Swing Lyrics

You step inside, but you don’t see too many faces.
Comin’ in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down.
Competition in other places…
But the horns, they blowin’ that sound.
Way on down south,
Way on down south, London-town….

And a crowd of young boys, they’re fooling around in the corner,
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles.
The don’t give a damn about any trumpet playing band.
It ain’t what they call rock and roll.
And the Sultans,
Yes the Sultans play Creole.
