NEW DATE: Springing Into a Speechtacular Event (FULL DAY)

The Communication Severity Scales (CSS)

These are guidelines for the IEP team to consider in determining the type, frequency, duration, and location of speech/language services. The CSS is addresses issues related to individualize therapy recommendations, LRE, and consistency in identification of students with significant speech/language disability. Included in the newest version are ELL resources and complex communication needs for students using alternate forms of communication and an Informal Pragmatic/Social Language Assessment.

Learner Outcomes

  1. Explain the legal requirements and parameters for providing LSH services to students with disabilities in public schools.
  2. Use the guidelines of the CSS to make needs based recommendations for service delivery.

Writing Meaningful and Compliant IEPs for the SLP

The IEP is a cornerstone of educational access to grade-level instruction for every child with a disability. Beyond surface level compliance in completing components of an IEP, this workshop focuses on IEP content specific to the Speech-Language Pathologist when case managing SLI students. Furthermore, recent case law has attempted to redefine “educational benefit” which creates a need to gain a better understanding of how an IEP is tied to educational access for each student with a disability. This workshop will allow the SLP to ask questions related to the SLI student population, including: private school students, consultation services, behaviors impeding learning, goals aligned with CCSS, present levels of performance, testing accommodations, and writing services.

Learner Outcomes

  1. Gain a deeper understanding of FAPE
  2. Consider IEP Content and its relationship to FAPE and educational benefit
  3. Review/Practice educational benefit analysis.
