This literature review will present studies concerning the roles of the teacher and SLP within the school system, effective collaboration between general education teachers and SLPs, and evidence-based intervention models. An exploration of CCSS will outline what teachers are expected to teach at the kindergarten level. Next, the roles and responsibilities of the SLP from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) will be reviewed to define what SLPs are expected to do within schools. Then, four articles will be reviewed to explain how teachers are missing an understanding of basic elements of the English Language necessary for effective instruction at the kindergarten level. An article will explain teachers’ opinions about speech-language pathology services in schools, followed by an article reviewing effective collaboration between teachers and SLPs. Finally, two articles will review effective intervention models that promote letter-sound correspondence based upon EBP.
