ASHAs position statement on Access to Communication Services and Supports recommends using which of the following as eligibility criteria: I. Discrepancies between cognitive and communication functioning II. Diagnosis III. Absence of cognitive or other skills purported to be prerequisites IV. Failure to benefit from previous communication services and supports ANSWERS: A. II only B. II & III C. I, II, & III D. None of the above E. All of the above
Eligibility policies and practices often preclude children and adults with severe disabilities from accessing needed communication services and supports. Communication services and supports may include instruction of individuals and their communication partners, assistive technology, and environmental modifications, and may be delivered through a variety of service delivery models. The expected outcome of such services and supports is to increase or to prevent decline in the individual's meaningful participation in daily activities. Categorical denial of communication services and supports without consideration of a person's unique communication needs may violate federal statute, and may also violate state law, regulation, and policy.
It is the position of the National Joint Committee for the Communication Needs of Persons With Severe Disabilities that eligibility for communication services and supports should be based on individual communication needs. Communication services and supports should be evaluated, planned, and provided by an interdisciplinary team with expertise in communication and language form, content, and function, as well as in augmentative and alternative communication(AAC). Decisions regarding team composition, types, amounts, and duration of services provided, intervention setting, and service delivery models should be based on the individual's communication needs and preferences.
