This packet contains 4 resources for discharge planning and speech therapy graduation. You can see all 4 resources by downloading the free preview.
1. Summary of Educational Performance: Get a synopsis of how your student is doing in class. Use the data to pinpoint areas of strengths and needs, and to prep IEP paperwork.
2. Goal Points Chart: Encourage carryover by having adults initial this chart when they “catch” the student using his/her speech or language skill. Write down the goal and discuss the chart with the student and the parent/teacher. If the student is upper elementary or older, put the student in charge of taking the form out and reminding the adult to initial it.
3. Speech-Language Discharge Planning Chart: Document the dates of your important discharge conversations! Use this chart to keep detailed notes during the discharge planning process for your students. I’ve included an example of what the chart might look like filled in.
4. Graduation Certificate: Give this to the student at the time of discharge to celebrate his/her effort in speech therapy. This is especially helpful if they’ll miss coming to speech.
Check out my discharge planning blog article for tips on how to use these materials.
