About the Speech Improvement Chapter

There are over 3,800 speech-language pathologists and speech improvement teachers working for the New York City Department of Education. We work in many different settings with a variety of different populations. Whether we are in a community school district (Districts 1 through 32), District 75 citywide program, elementary, middle or high school, we have an important job to ensure that all children get the appropriate speech and language services recommended on their individualized education programs (IEPs). As part of the IEP teams, we help determine the speech services and goals for our students. It takes the right balance of professionalism, skill and dedication to make sure that children are receiving what they really need to achieve success. The speech chapter is here to support our members and is always available to help members understand their rights and benefits as union members.
