(5.18) When can my child get speech or language therapy as a related service?

Speech and language therapy may be the most frequently requested related service. Speech therapy addresses articulation difficulties, a common disability.  Language therapy addresses difficulties with memory, verbal expression, and listening.  If your child has any difficulties with speech or language, you should ask the district, in writing, to do a speech and language evaluation.  Any student eligible for special education may receive speech and language therapy if she needs the service to benefit from special education.
