The purpose of the present study was to propose a school-based, speech therapy model that was appropriate to the Korean situation through a two-stage research methodology. A literature review was conducted first to examine a variety of school-based, speech therapy models suggested in other countries and thus survey the knowledge and needs of special educators about speech therapy. The survey investigated the special educators’ perceptions on speech therapy needs, required qualifications for both teachers and speech therapists, and problems of the school-based speech therapy. The special educators suggested a combination model integrating the direct speech therapy model (in which a speech therapist treats students on an individual basis) and the indirect speech therapy service model (in which a speech therapist collaboratively consults teachers about speech therapy). Other results indicated that collaboration between teachers and speech therapists based upon professional knowledge and ongoing communication rated importantly. Further, administrative supports such as arranging a therapy room and raising the perceived importance of therapeutic service were also suggested in order to provide school contexts with speech therapy.
