Program Suggestions for Speech & Language Services. The Special Education Process in Michigan.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Div. of Special Education.
The manual suggests procedures for speech and language programs in Michigan. The six stages of the special education process are examined: referral; evaluation (including the role of the multidisciplinary evaluation team and eligibility requirements for determining speech and language impairments); the individualized educational planning committee (including participants, individual education plan (IEP) content, and performance objectives); delivery of service (including caseload size, determination, and extent of service to be provided); IEP review (termination of service and follow-up); and the three-year reevaluation. Two final sections set forth qualifications for teachers of the speech and language impaired and list resources for additional information or assistance. Extensive appendixes include an interpretation of speech and language services for bilingual children, sample evaluation worksheets, and decision making materials. (CL)
