Dismissing A Student From Speech

by Kayla

If I have a student only working on articulation and the student as mastered all of his speech goals, is using his sounds consistently in conversation, and his teacher reports that she doesn’t notice errors in his speech in the classroom, can I use that data to dismiss him from speech services or do I have to complete a standardized assessment as well?

No Assessment Is Needed!

If the student has mastered all of his goals and progress has generalized to conversational speech outside of the classroom, he can be dismissed on that data alone.

Good job!
