The Impact of IDEA 04 and NCLB on Speech and Language Related Services: How Do We Meet the Challenges
Means, Jennifer
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2006 n1 Fall 2006
As most special educators endure the periodic legal changes in education and special education, related service providers face the same challenges. These challenges include Inclusion, IDEA 04 regulations, NCLB and curricular related services. This paper presents these challenges and discusses a variety of solutions providing the most appropriate and feasible delivery methods for speech and language services for children with special needs. A brief overview of the evolution of speech and language services is presented in order to set the stage for discussing the impact of recent legal changes. IDEA 04 and NCLB are discussed with respect to utilization of the academic and social curriculum. Various service delivery models are examined with specific implementation methods to meet curricular standards. Sample goals are presented with suggestions for incorporating related services in special education IEPs without duplication of services. The need for a transdisciplinary model for IEP implementation emphasized.
