3:1 Model

FRPS uses the 3:1 Model which allows increased consultation with general education teachers and other special education staff to further assist your child in academic achievement.  And most importantly, the content of the speech/language therapy session will be carried over into the general education setting.  As part of this model, the Speech Language Pathologist will provide direct services for three weeks and will use the fourth week for consultation with regular educators.  Additional activities may include conducting classroom observations, assessments, preparation of individual student activities, or continued direct service.

Implementation of the 3:1 Model will be beneficial to your child in many ways.  This model will allow Speech-Language Pathologists to increase their effectiveness in the following ways: 

  1. Support of the DoDEA Community Strategic Plan for highest student achievement. 
  2. Support of your child in the classroom through collaboration with general and special educators regarding curriculum content and student expectations. 
  3. Student sessions are based on both individual student needs and general education curricular expectations
