Abstract: This project presents a review of speech-language therapy models at the junior high and high school level. The two models include: push-in therapy, where the speech-language pathologist goes into the classroom, and pull-out therapy, where students are pulled out of the classroom for speech therapy. Our presentation will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each therapy model. A combination of both models is generally found to be best for students receiving speech therapy services. Consideration of various factors will be discussed when embracing push-in and pull-out therapy models in the field of speech language pathology.
