The expanding responsibilities of the speech and hearing clinician in the public schools are discussed within the framework of (1) his role in defining his own educational responsibilities; (2) the emerging duties of the resource, remedial, and learning disability teachers and speech and hearing clinicians, and educational implications; (3) the traditional role of the sensory-motor technician as contrasted to his emerging role as a specialist in communication disorders; (4) evaluating and remediating communication and achievement problems with regard to channels, processes, and levels of communication; (5) important guidelines for planning remedial activities; (6) defining responsibilities for a team approach; (7) his responsibilities toward a speech improvement program in the classroom; and (8) the necessity for him to expand his role from that of a sensory-motor technician to that of a specialist in the area of communication disorders.
