Disability Determination Guidelines for Speech Impairment (SI)

In 2000, a TSHA Task Force was created to develop guidelines for speech impairment in the four areas recognized in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) – articulation, language, voice, and fluency. Since that time, guidelines for Language with Other Disabilities and a Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CLD) Companion to the Articulation Eligibility Guidelines has been completed. Training on the guidelines has previously only been available through the regional Education Service Centers in Texas and at TSHA Convention.

In 2020, the TSHA Continuation of Guidelines committee will undergo an extensive update to each guideline.New Updated  Guidelines have already been published along with access to print copies of the guidelines. Training for the use of guidelines is available to all who would prefer training. TSHA CEUs may be obtained for the following courses and guidelines.
