Becoming a Certified Speech and  Language Specialist

Teachers with a general teaching degree teach students who have been diagnosed with 
Speech and  Language Disorder every day.  But it is teachers who have taken the time to learn about unique teaching styles and learning methods for Speech and  Language Disorder students that are making a dramatic difference in the lives of Speech and  Language Disorder students both in governmental and private schools. 

Speech and  Language specialist is someone who works with children who are diagnosed with Speech and  Language Disorder, which can include a range of behaviors and challenges.  Speech and Language specialists who obtain an advanced Speech and  Language Disorder certification learn the specific skills necessary to work with these children and help them meet their goals. The ITA Speech and  Language Specialist course will prepare you for understanding the challenges involved in working with Speech and  Language Disorder children and guide you in building your skill set to create a positive classroom that nurtures and grows all of its students. After successfully completing the ITA Speech and  Language Specialist Training course, you will find many new and exciting job prospects opening up in your professional teaching career.  We have found that employers of international schools, private schools, learning centers and daycares have a very strong positive reaction to our teachers and their ability to teach any child, regardless of the students learning capabilities or challenges.
