Program Guidelines for Language, Speech, and Hearing Specialists Providing Designated Instruction and Services.
Lundin, Janet, Ed.; Clark-Thomas, Eleanor, Ed.
These guidelines serve as a model for meeting the educational needs of students with language, speech, and hearing disorders. The guidelines clarify the paperwork requirements of federal and state statutes; reduce paperwork procedures to increase instructional time to students; recommend service delivery models; provide criteria to assist in monitoring an effective program; and incorporate the expertise of the language, speech, and hearing specialist with the regular education program to assist students who are underserved and do not meet eligibility criteria. Individual chapters cover: identification and referral, the assessment process, eligibility for special education, Individualized Education Program development, requirements for and reduction of paperwork, and service delivery models. Appendixes contain information on the role of the language, speech, and hearing specialist; professional qualifications in California; certification standards for the language, speech, and hearing specialist; sources of funding; least restrictive environment policy; and facilities and equipment. Also included are: (1) a list of resource persons who can provide information about technical assistance, severity rating scales, and computerized individualized education programs; (2) a questionnaire for evaluating and improving the effectiveness of local programs; and (3) several assessment, referral, and other administrative forms.
