Speech and Language Services

  • Children holding hands. Each child with a letter that spells Speech.

    The goals of the Madera County Superintendent of Schools (MCSOS) Speech and Language program include the following:

    • Provide identification and assessment of articulation, language, voice, and fluency delays.
    • Develop and implement an Individualized Education Program (IEP).
    • Provide designated instructional services.
    • Provide consultation for parents, teachers, and other school personnel regarding a student's language and speech delays.

    Speech and Language Pathologists provide speech services to students who participate in the MCSOS classes. These specialists provide direct articulation, language, voice, and fluency intervention to students. Specialists work with students who have difficulty understanding and using language. Specialists also help teachers develop activities which will benefit the language skills of all children in the classroom setting.
