eligibility criteria for sli
Eligibility Criteria for SLI
  • Operational Definition (Part I, H.)

"Speech or Language Impairment" means a communication disorder such as deviant articulation, fluency, voice, and/or comprehension and/or expression of language, spoken or written, which impedes the child's acquisition of basic cognitive and/or affective skills, as reflected in the Arkansas Department of Education curriculum standards.

Communicative Abilities

“The SLP is to conduct a thorough and balanced speech, language, or communication assessment.

The foundation of a quality individualized assessment is to establish a complete student history. That information should guide the selection of subsequent assessment tools and activities, which should reflect multiple perspectives.

No single assessment measure can provide sufficient data to create an accurate and comprehensive communication profile.”

for verbal communicators
For Verbal Communicators

Students using spoken language to communicate.

  • Two or more tests and/or procedures which will delineate the specific nature and extent of the disorder.

AND

  • Oral-peripheral speech mechanism examination, which includes a description of the status and function of orofacial structures.
for nonverbal communicators
For Nonverbal Communicators

Students who are nonspeaking or exhibit severe difficulties using verbal communication to make themselves understood by others.

  • An assessment for augmentative/alterna-tive communication (AAC) performed by a multidisciplinary team with experience, training, and competence in AAC.

AND

  • Oral-peripheral speech mechanism exam.
what is aac
What Is AAC?

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas.

We all use AAC when we make facial expressions or gestures, use symbols or pictures, or write.

what is aac1
What Is AAC?

People with severe speech or language problems rely on AAC to supplement existing speech or replace speech that is not functional. Special augmentative aids, such as picture and symbol communication boards and electronic devices, are available to help people express themselves. This may increase social interaction, school performance, and feelings of self-worth.

What Is AAC?

AAC users should not stop using speech if they are able to do so.

The AAC aids and devices are used to enhance their communication.

Combining standardized (norm-referenced) with nonstandardized (descriptive) assessment using multiple methods will assure the collection of student-centered, contextualized, performance-based, and functional information about the child's communicative abilities and needs.

Standardized assessment may consist of any diagnostic tool that compares results to an appropriate normative sample.

Nonstandardized assessment may consist of criterion-referenced assessment, curriculum-based assessment, dynamic assessment*, language samples, and structured probes.

When evaluating speech and/or language for disability category other than SLI, refer to required evaluation components* for the disability category being considered (e.g., hearing impairment, mental retardation).

Types of Communication Disorders

  • Language Disorders

Impaired comprehension and/or use of spoken, written, and/or other symbol systems. This disorder may involve the form of language (phonology, morphology, syntax), the content and meaning of language (semantics, prosody), and/or the function of language (pragmatics) in communication. Such disorders may involve one, all, or a combination of the following components of language.

Types of Communication Disorders

  • Speech Production Disorders

Impairment of the articulation of speech sounds, fluency and/or voice. Such disorders may involve one, all or a combination of the following components of the speech production system.

Speech Production Disorders
  • Articulation
  • Voice
  • Fluency
evaluation data analysis2
Evaluation Data Analysis
  • In analyzing communicative abilities, the SLP should be aware of factors which represent communication differences rather than disorders. Communication differences refer to maturational, regional, social or cultural/ethnic speech and/or language variations that are not considered communication disorders.
evaluation data analysis3
Evaluation Data Analysis
  • After carefully analyzing the evaluation data pertaining to the student's communicative abilities, the speech-language pathologist will complete a written evaluation report which includes impressions indicating the presence or absence of a clinical disorder.
evaluation data analysis4
Evaluation Data Analysis
  • Through committee interaction this evaluation information will be integrated with all other data (e.g., teacher observations, including those of educational performance, and other formal and informal assessment data) gathered throughout the screening/ evaluation processes. This will be done so that the committee may determine if a disabling condition exists which impedes the student's acquisition of expected academic, behavioral, social, vocational, and functional performance goals.
evaluation data analysis5
Evaluation Data Analysis
  • The committee must judge what the consequences of the impairment are for the student in relation to expected learnings within the curriculum, as established at each grade and/or chronological age level of skill development. The relationship of the communication disorder to expected learnings should be recorded on the Evaluation/ Programming Conference Decision form. Once the adverse affect on educational performance is established, a determination must be made of the corresponding need for special education services.
evaluation data analysis6
Evaluation Data Analysis
  • When a student whose eligibility is based on a disability category other than "Speech or Language Impairment" exhibits a concomitant communication disorder, (as determined through formal evaluation), then circumstances exist for the provision of speech and/or language services.
criteria for dismissal part iii section 1
Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 1)

Speech and language therapy services may be terminated when one or more of the following criteria have been met and it is the decision of the IEP Team that:

  • The speech/language problem is no longer a disability as demonstrated by norm-referenced and/or criterion-referenced assessment results, and/or clinical procedures.
  • The child's IEP goals have been attained and no adverse affect on educational performance is present.
criteria for dismissal part iii section 11
Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 1)
  • The acquisition of expected academic, behavioral, social, vocational, and/or functional performance goals is no longer affected by the child's communication (an adverse affect on educational performance no longer exists).
  • The child has attained a level of performance commensurate with expectations given his/her clinical condition such as, but not limited to, limited cognitive functioning, structural anomalies, neurological disabilities and/or hearing impairment.
criteria for dismissal part iii section 12
Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 1)
  • The child has maintained the same level of performance as measured by standardized tests and/or procedures over a period of time, indicating to the IEP Team that the child cannot reasonably benefit from continued treatment at the present time. Throughout the period of speech/language therapy service, the speech-language pathologist must demonstrate documented use of a variety of intervention strategies attempted to stimulate progress.
use of criteria for dismissal part iii section 2
Use of Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 2)

The Criteria for Dismissal from Speech or

Language Therapy Services address those

circumstances which result in the termination

of speech/language services, either

permanently or for some specified time period,

provided to a student by the speech-language

pathologist.

use of criteria for dismissal part iii section 21
Use of Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 2)

It is important for the speech-language

pathologist to use sound professional

judgment and competency in recommending

that services are no longer warranted.

use of criteria for dismissal part iii section 22
Use of Criteria for Dismissal(Part III, Section 2)

Prior to recommending dismissal from

speech/language services, the IEP Team

should review the Factors to Consider in

Dismissal.

12 factors to consider in dismissal
12 Factors to Consider in Dismissal
  • Duration of Services

guidelines for evaluation reevaluation part iii section 5
Guidelines for Evaluation/Reevaluation(Part III, Section 5)

Reevaluations are to be conducted if

conditions warrant a reevaluation or if the

child's parent(s) or teacher requests an

evaluation, but at least once every 3 years.

Additionally, the local educational agency shall

evaluate a child with a disability before

determining that the child is no

longer a child with a disability.

guidelines for evaluation reevaluation part iii section 51
Guidelines for Evaluation/Reevaluation(Part III, Section 5)
  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Establish or re-establish eligibility in the required manner.
  • Partial Evaluation: No test administration; Collect information that directly assists in determining the educational needs of the child, as well as how to teach and assist in the most appropriate way.
  • No Additional Data Needed: Notify parents and conduct assessment if requested.
