A model for the full integration of children with severe speech-language problems into the regular classroom is presented. After the diagnostic characteristics and educational profiles of the severe speech-language population are defined, the structure and roles of the collaborative teaching teams of speech-language pathologists, regular educators, and paraprofessionals are specified. The critical importance of administrative and parental support, as well as the active involvement of the staffing team, are indicated. The implications of collaborating to create a language-rich environment where all children belong and are taught according to their individual needs also are discussed.
