Why is it important?

Given school-based SLPs' language and literacy expertise, we are well suited for engaging in collaborative partnerships in the school setting to increase academic outcomes. The information presented in this tutorial provides a guide to establish collaborative partnerships within educational teams to support morphological knowledge development through all MTSS tiers.


I particularly enjoyed writing this article with colleagues who are also passionate about curriculum-based instruction and interprofessional practice in the schools. We really wanted to provide readers with a "roadmap" for getting started in these types of collaborations.
