A- A+

If you’re up for a little light reading this weekend, you might want to check out ASHA’s 2014 SLP Schools Survey Caseload Report.

Among the findings:

  • 55% of school-based SLPs regularly serve students with AAC needs
  • 90% of them serve kids with ASD.
  • The largest median caseload (60) was in Florida, and the smallest (35) was in New York.
