Short Term, Online SLP Services

The Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) funds these limited online SLP services to ODP consumers and their families/teams. ODP consumers can receive up to fifteen hours of services from a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist.

A licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) can work with your team to:

  • Assess current communication (formal or informal evaluation.)
  • Recommend a communication focus.
  • Develop a communication support plan.
  • Teach practical strategies for communication.
  • Select, set up, and/or customize a communication device.
  • Plan for getting an AAC device, including writing an insurance report, if necessary.
  • Troubleshoot communication strategies, AAC devices, and more.
