Summary: Speech Pathology Group is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Speech and Language Pathologists (SLPs), Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Behavior Technicians, and Instructional Assistance for school-based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When Mt.

Speech Pathology Group is a company that is utilized to provide these services to ensure that all of our needed services are covered for the 2021-2022 school year. Mt. Diablo Unified School District Human Resources and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
