Services for Students with Speech and Language Disabilities

Eligibility

The specific eligibility criteria for speech and language under state law is found at PI 11.36 (5) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has developed a technical assistance guide to assist IEP teams in evaluating children to determine if they have speech and language impairment and need for special education due to the impairment.

The North West Speech and Language Pathology Conference

This conference will focus on the revised CCR IEP forms and the new five step process to writing IEPs explicitly through the lens of speech and language.  Communication is woven throughout the forms and the process. Participants will learn and be able to apply all the aspects of speech and language to the five step process to write effective, efficient and compliant IEPs.

The Preschool Options Project provides training to assist local school districts in developing a range of options in Least Restrictive Environments (LRE) for young children with disabilities. The site is a great resource for therapists working with children ages 3 to 5.
