Use this rating scale with speech evaluations to help determine the educational impact of a student's articulation difficulties.
In the public schools, speech therapy is considered a special education service. In order to qualify, a student must meet federal and state guidelines. One of the most exclusionary criteria is that there must be an educational impact resultant from the student's disability / disorder. In terms of articulation, this means therapy cannot be strictly for cosmetic purposes. This rating scale helps identify the adverse effect a student's articulation errors may have on his/her functional and academic performance across the school setting. It is a 1-page teacher questionnaire that can be completed quickly and easily. It highlights classroom participation, intelligibility, socialization with peers, and the student's emotional reaction / response to his/her own errors. It includes a section for the teacher to indicate the impact in the areas of reading, writing, spelling, and class discussions / presentations.
