I'm a Speech Pathologist - when communication has been checked on an evaluation plan, I have always assumed that a full and complete evaluation needed to be completed. My question: Is this a correct assumption or can a standardized screening tool, such as the CELF be given?
OPI – The Evaluation Report team determines what level/type of assessment is sufficient to determine the students eligibility and need for special education. So a standardized screening school may be sufficient in some instances to provide the information necessary to determine if the student meets with criteria for eligibility.
OPI – This would be a local district practice to establish – there is nothing in state or federal regulations which would require (or prohibit) this best practice.
