Speech & Language Guidelines

The following guidelines are considered when determining a student's need for services:

a. In order to receive speech and language therapy as a Related Service, students' scores on two or more total standardized tests within the diagnostic battery must be below the 25th percentile (below Scaled Score of 8). Receptive and expressive language deficits must impact upon academic performance.

b. Consideration of Building Level Services will take into account below average scores on complete standardized measures, in addition to functional assessments.
