Designated Instructional Services (DIS) Speech-Language Pathology School Services

Since 1988, Peninsula Associates has provided contracted DIS services in local public schools. We maintain current NPA certification through the California Department of Education and employ many speech-language pathologists with years of relevant school experience. We provide full or part time services and work with students at all levels: preschool, elementary, middle and high school.

Peninsula Associates is dedicated to ensure that contract agencies receive services from highly qualified professionals who will provide a high standard of care and services. We received referrals from the Local Plan Area, School Districts, and County Office of Education for evaluations, direct consultation/monitoring and direct individual or group services in fulfillment of IEP recommendations. Qualified therapists provide services to meet the goals of the IEP that pertain to their field of expertise. We can contract with agencies on an ISA or daily rate.

Feedback from our contracting partners in the schools has been enthusiastic.

"Peninsula Associates has been extremely persistent, flexible, and creative in meeting our district's speech and language needs. The very professional therapists have been able to smoothly and easily transition into handling difficult caseloads and collaborating with district staff. The entire relationship has been very successful."
