Imagine that you attend an Individual Education Plan (IEP) meeting to discuss plans for a child who is entering sixth grade. This child has been on your caseload since he was in kindergarten. He has cerebral palsy, walks with a cane, and receives special education services. He has been labeled with a learning disability and speech/language impairment.
For the past 6 years, you have focused on both speech and language goals. His speech intelligibility has greatly improved. He is now understood by family, teachers, staff, and classmates even though he continues to demonstrate poor breath support for speech and does not produce all speech sounds accurately. He has reached a plateau in his progress toward his speech goals. However, his language deficits still remain and affect his classroom progress. He has been making good progress on language goals targeted in the past. Based on this information, you decide to write only language-based goals for this year’s IEP. You plan to continue to monitor speech intelligibility to ensure that the current level of functioning remains, but, for the most part, you would like treatment to focus on language skills that will help improve this child’s performance in the classroom.
