Even though many would disagree with me, the speech pathologist is not there to teach academics. We are there to fill gaps. The SLP needs to focus on teaching underlying skills that aid independent learning and life skills. It is difficult to work on remediating language disabilities if we also have to address academics.
Last thoughts......It is important to have an idea of the basic curriculum. If a student asks for help with academics, try to drop everything, find out what they need and help them out. I know that if a student comes to me with an academic questions they are either struggling, confused or overwhelmed.
