What is OMNIE?

The Ohio Master's Network Initiatives in Education (OMNIE) was developed in 1996 as a collaborative distance learning master's degree program for speech-language pathologists working in Ohio's schools. The program, funded by the Ohio Department of Education, expanded over the years to address both the recruitment and retention of speech-language pathologists in Ohio's schools. Over the years it included a statewide recruitment project in high schools, colleges and universities, a collaborative distance learning master's degree program, an intern program, a telepractice project in speech-language pathology, sign on bonuses to attract Speech-language pathologists to hard to fill positions and the Speech and Language Guidelines project. The Speech and Language Guidelines have been renewed and repurposed into a module format. Each module has been authored by experts from the state of Ohio and are updated annually. They are intended to be a ' just in time' resource for educators who work with students with communication disorders (speech-language pathologists, intervention specialists, teachers, related service providers, administrators and parents). Ohio's newly restored and renovated SLP Guidelines provide inspiration and helpful tips to inform practice with students with communication challenges.
