COVID19 – Its advent and subsequent stay at home measures have created many questions in the assessment, identification, and provision of services for our students with special needs. Whether we return to school in person, online, or a hybrid model, we are still required to ensure our students are provided a Free and Appropriate Public Education through IDEA. Assessment, evaluation and its necessary counterpart – report writing will need to be accomplished. This workshop will focus on how COVID19 may impact your assessment and identification of students, and how to accurately reflect that in your Speech and Language Report.
