When considering the challenges that students with learning disorders and difficulties face both in and out of the classroom, it is not uncommon for these students to access additional support from various allied health professionals.

Allied Health Professionals (such as Speech Pathologists, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists) play an important role in not only identifying additional challenges or barriers to learning that the student may be experiencing, but they also provide much needed support and targeted intervention to address these barriers.  The role of the allied health professional varies depending on the needs of the student and what level of support they require.
