DescriptionGrand Island Public Schools/Central Nebraska Support Services Program Special Education Supervisor, Penny Brown, will present training on the use of guiding documents for identifying students with a Speech/Language Impairment in the area of language. The "Language Verification Matrix” and "Language Verification Checklist" have been developed and implemented over the past five years by GIPS/CNSSP SLPs with SPED administration approval. This process was designed to help SLPs steer away from using the severe discrepancy model for making entitlement decisions. This training will emphasize use of "multiple data sources" and how the information obtained fits into the "three-part eligibility requirement" set forth in the Nebraska verification guidelines Technical Assistance document for conducting comprehensive evaluations. NSLHA’s Schools Committee is in the process of adopting use of either the “Speech/Language Impairment - Language Verification Matrix” or the “Speech/Language Impairment - Language Verification Checklist” as a recommended best practice.

NOTE: This presentation will be offered again in the morning on April 22, 2019 at ESU 3 in Omaha. Watch for details. The April 22 session will be recorded and made available online for later viewing.
