Presenter

A past president of the New Jersey Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NJSHA), Sue A. Goldman, MA, CCC – SLP, has spent the bulk of her career working as a public school SLP, designing programs for students with speech-language disorders and working directly with special and regular education teachers to facilitate and support in-class SLP services and literacy skills. Sue has worked as adjunct faculty at Kean University and currently works as a consultant. She spent three years as a supervisor working through Seton Hall University, investigating ways to consult in setting up innovative speech-language service delivery models and literacy lessons in preschool school programs. Workshop presentations include Phonemic Awareness and Literacy, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) regulations and In-class Speech-Language Pathology Services. The first State Education Advocacy Leaders (SEAL) representing New Jersey for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Sue is a coauthor of ASHA’s 2010 Roles and Responsibilities of Speech-Language Pathologists in Schools and co-author of the New Jersey’s Department of Education’s Technical Assistance Document: The Evaluation of Speech and Language. She has served as a member of ASHA’s School Finance Committee, ASHA’s Legislative Council and ASHA’s Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Committee (SLPAC). Currently on the board of NJSHA and the program advisory board of the New Jersey Coalition of Inclusive Education (NJCIE), Sue also is serving as a member of the current New Jersey Tiered Systems of Supports Committee of the NJDOE.

Abstract

New Jersey’s Special Education Code, N.J.A.C. 6A:14 is based on the mandates within the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Over the years both NJASLS and NJSHA have worked with the NJ Office of Special Education Programs on clarification of the intent of the mandates in the code. Since it is required that all students with disabilities be identified and served appropriately in order to receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE), misinterpretation of mandates may lead inadvertently to noncompliance. Currently ASHA is requiring all members to obtain professional development in ethics, which also can be compromised if correct interpretation of regulations prevails. In addition, N.J.A.C 6A:9-3.3 contains important mandates relative to professional development. Knowledge of these mandates will help the SLS attain appropriate professional development opportunities.

This webinar will aim to clarify interpretation of regulations that have frequently been questioned and misinterpreted and how SLSs can interpret them appropriately. Topics include initial evaluation criteria versus re-evaluation requirements, application of CI criteria to speech-language pathology as a related service for classifications other than CI, action on requests to drop speech-language services from an ESLS IEP versus an Eligible for Special Education and Related Services (ESERS) IEP, professional development and Medicaid issues.

Due to its relevance and importance, the 2010 ASHA document, Roles and Responsibilities of SLPs in Schools, will be referenced specific to various topics, as will an explanation of the intent of the SLS’s job in the schools, as dictated by the IDEA.

Learner Outcomes

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to appropriately apply criteria to eligibility for CI and speech-language pathology as a related service for other categories under ESERS.
  • Explain what considerations for future eligibility are needed when a reevaluation is completed.
  • Explain how to cite regulations that will enable SLSs to receive appropriate professional development

Time-Ordered Agenda

30 Minutes Use of assessment results – choosing appropriate standardized tests to meet the mandates for a language evaluation in N.J.A.C. 6A:14
40 Minutes Appropriate functional assessment to accompany test results for determining eligibility for CI and speech-language pathology as a related service
20 Minutes Considerations for future eligibility decisions when completing a reevaluation
30 Minutes Regulations to ensure appropriate professional development for SLSs and PD relative to Medicaid

Continuing Education

Abstract

As a result of the current pandemic, many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and clinical supervisors have been asked to shift their treatment methodology from face to face intervention to that of virtual telepractice services. This dramatic and rapid shift has left many SLPs without the training or resources to adequately provide services to vulnerable populations of individuals with speech and language disorders. Students and supervisors in clinical training programs have had to adjust to new and increasing demands of telepractice services. This presentation will serve to support supervisors in understanding current best practice in the field of telepractice, as well as modifying supervision techniques and feedback to best meet the needs of this new service delivery model. Participants will review telepractice platforms, terminology, resources, methodologies and training for support personnel and families. Participants will also review best practice in the use of evaluation tools via telepractice platforms. Ethical considerations of this model of service delivery will be identified and applied to functional outcomes.

Learner Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • identify telepractice platforms, features and functions that support supervision and therapy in the provision of speech and language services.
  • contrast various digital and non-digital therapy tools and methodologies to implement evidence-based decision making in the development of POCs.
  • demonstrate knowledge of parent and support personnel training needed to support telepractice sessions.
  • identify tools for providing telepractice speech and language evaluations.
  • apply applications to their therapy practice for the treatment of communication disorders using technology.
