Guidelines for Case Selection and Prioritizing Pupils for Participation in Speech/Language Programs/Services.
Ginn, Mary E.; And Others
The monograph presents information designed to help speech/language pathologists in South Carolina improve the quality of services for children with communication disorders while still complying with mandates of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. A discussion is presented regarding a continuum of appropriate services, including consultation with parents, teachers, or pupils; indirect pupil involvement; weekly small group therapy sessions; and daily individual sessions. Guidelines are offered regarding determination of eligibility for services based on the South Carolina Severity Rating Scales, which identify priority needs in articulation, fluency, voice, and language. Worksheets and information are provided for each of the four areas, with names of suggested evaluation measures appended. The manual concludes with a listing of type of services and service eligibility requirements for educable mentally handicapped, trainable mentally handicapped, and profoundly mentally handicapped students.
