For both the Special Education tab and the Related Services tab, a Service Type field is the first field in the window to be addressed.a. In the Special Education window, select the service type from the drop down box which will have only two choices: “speech therapy” and a blank.1) If you have a student with any disability, other than SLI, the user will select “blank” from the drop down and manually enter the actual service provided in the Service Details field. For this student, speech therapy is a related service, and those services should be entered under the Related Services tab.a) If the user needs to create a speech goal page for this student (where the Area field at the top of the page is articulation, for example), then he/she must enter the speech service in Related Services, and must also address the Special Education tab because it is required to complete each goal page.b) This will require the user to enter, for example, “See Related Services” or some similar directive in the Special Education field.

Amount of time to be listed is per session only, not cumulative over the course of a week, month, school term, etc.
26 Miscellaneous Notes1. The list of services for each service type is not cumulative for all that are entered. For example, the same occupational therapy related service might exist for a student for a reading goal and for a math goal. Under each goal it might be assigned as two times per week. The student only receives the service twice a week not four times.This service would be attached to both goals. Remember to consider this when calculating Least Restrictive Environment so as not to misrepresent time outside the regular classroom as double what it actually is.2. Routine accommodations should be listed under “Supplementary Aids and Services”, not “Accommodations Needed for Assessment”.3. Each service needs to be added separately. Do not list multiple services under one insertion.
