Abstract

Research suggests that there are benefits for children and staff from joint working between speech and language therapists (SLTs) and teachers. However, differing models and a number of obstacles to successful joint working have been identified. Using a survey design, this study aimed to: explore the perceptions of school staff regarding a speech and language therapy service to mainstream schools in one education authority; identify issues regarding the components of current service delivery from the school staff perspective; and explore how these perceptions may be used to contribute to future planning.
