(CANCELED) Communication Severity Scales (CSS)

This workshop will share the development and utilization of the Communication Severity Scales (CSS). The CSS were developed by the LSH workgroup in the North Inland SELPA in San Diego County. They are designed to address the need for using assessment data and professional expertise to recommend the appropriate level of speech and language services for individual students for consideration by the IEP team. Tools will be shared for determining when an assessment is indicated for potential speech or language disabilities for EL students. Participants will utilize the information for students on their caseloads to apply the CSS.
