Other Issues
- Current school set up is not best practice for students with severe disabilities.
-Students are spread out throughout system which means that support systems are spread thin.
-Speech therapists are serving multiple schools, and schedule sessions tightly. This means that time is lost while students travel.
-Adequate technology and materials are not available when students are spread out across schools.
Other Issues Continued
-Inclusive students are being serviced in the same setting as severe students.

-Behavior problems that occur daily interfere with instruction
If I Were Superintendent?
- I would limit the amount of sharing of schools that the speech pathologists to the schools that had the fewest number of students needing to be serviced.
If I Were Superintendent?
Hire a parent involvement specialist to provide home visits if needed.
If I were Superintendent?
Place all students with severe/profound disabilities in one setting so that resources may be more easily implemented.
