Service Delivery Historically SLPs relied on pull-out models with an individual child or small groups.
Service Delivery Due to changes in federal law, general philosophies, new research, and the shift in educational reforms, SLPs are using more inclusive service delivery methods including delivery of service directly within the general education classroom setting.
Throneburg et al., 2000 McNulty and Gloeckler (2011) Throneburg and Davidson (2002)
Service Delivery Additional supports in the classroom now include the use of the following: – Instructional strategies based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) – Targeted interventions/intervention systems – Accommodations – Assistive technology
Service Delivery Current data from schools that show high performance for students with disabilities, including SL, utilize effective inclusion strategies and support systems in the general education setting.
Service Delivery “The goal of introducing alternative models of service delivery is not to eliminate pullout services, rather, the goal is restriction of the use of pullout services to appropriate cases and the provision of alternative approaches when they best serve student’s needs.” – (Sanger et al., 1995)
Our Purpose Fix? OR Support?
Measurable Annual Goals 34 C.F.R. § (a)(2)(i); Wis. Stat. § (2)(b) ……to enable the child to be involved in and make progress in the general education curriculum ……

Raelyn At home, Raelyn responds to her name and follows routine, 1-step directions like “Get your shoes.” or “Clean up.” Raelyn enjoys books and will look at and occasionally name the pictures and turn the pages. Raelyn is understood most of the time by familiar adults. She uses words to name items like clothes, food, and toys, to express possession (“mine”), to greet (“hi,” “bye”), and describe (“hot”). To get attention, Raelyn will call “Mama” or scream.
Raelyn Raelyn currently substitutes me/I, uses approximately 50+ words, combines some words in phrases, omits age-expected grammatic structures, and responds to some “What, Where” questions. She is able to label the following photos: tar/car, boo/book, boots, a ball, teys/keys. Raelyn currently can be difficult to understand in connected speech. She omits some final consonants and substitutes t/k and d/g.
Raelyn-Goal 1 Raelyn will increase her expressive language skills to a level that enables her to communicate and interact with peers and adults with at least 80% accuracy (8 of 10 opportunities).
Raelyn-Goal 2 Raelyn will increase her speech sound production skills to a level that enables unfamiliar listeners to understand her with 80% accuracy (8 of 10 utterances).
How might we get there? Raelyn will increase her expressive language skills to a level that enables her to communicate and interact with peers and adults with at least 80% accuracy (8 of 10 opportunities). (1) refer to herself with “I” and/or “Raelyn” (2) name objects and pictures in a variety of categories (3) combine 3+ words to tell action, describe or tell location (4) use /-ing/ and possessive/plural /s/ (“cat’s, cats”) (5) respond to simple “Yes- No, What, Who, Where” questions about objects and pictures
How might we get there? Raelyn will increase her speech sound production skills to a level that enables unfamiliar listeners to understand her with 80% accuracy (8 of 10 utterances). (1) produce final consonants in single words (2) produce final consonants in words in short phrases (3) produce /k, g/ in the initial position of words (4) produce /k, g/ in the initial position of words in short phrases
