Trish: I am a speech clinician in a school district, assigned to Middle & High. I’ve been told students classified Speech Lang.Impaired, must receive speech services. If the student has received services since pre-k and is now in HS, but continues to need placement in special class/supports, can they continue with their SLI classification without continuing the related service? The psychologist has indicated based on their testing scores, they don’t qualify for LD classification. So when the CSE agrees to terminate speech services, the parent is told that declassification must occur, even though the student struggles in a self contained class.
