Special education directors are challenged to deliver consistently high quality services. Rural districts, especially, face shortages of qualified SLPs. As the number of students with autism and other disorders increases and with requirements of RTI and Common Core standards, SPED leaders are seeking new approaches to meet the growing demand. For Benton County, Tennessee, a rural district, integrating online speech/language services with their traditional delivery model has been a surprisingly effective and affordable solution. Join us for a free one hour webinar to get the whole story: the perspective of the district SPED director, advice from SLPs, and feedback from a parent and student who have experienced online speech therapy.
Panelist: Pam Chmelik is the Special Education Supervisor at Benton County School District in Tennessee. Prior to her 20-year career in Benton County, Pam was a Child Sexual Abuse Counselor at the Tennessee Department of Human Services and the director of a disability services agency. In her spare time, she serves on the local boards of the United Way and Habitat for Humanity.
