Steps That Determine Placement for Children With a Communication Disorder
1. An initial speech and/or language screening that indicates a potential speech or language deficit occurs first.
2. Should a child fail one or both portions of a screening the classroom teacher implements RTI (Response To Intervention) modifications for a number of weeks in order to determine if classroom modifications will show
3. If no progress is noted the child is then referred by the classroom teacher for a speech and/or language evaluation.
