Speech and Hearing
Indiana State Law requires hearing screening for students in
the first, fourth, seventh, and tenth grade, students who have a
history of hearing problems, new students to the Delaware
Community School District, and students who have a known hearing
loss. The speech and language therapist informs parents of any
hearing problems or changes in their child's hearing acuity.
Parents may call Albany Elementary at any time to request a
hearing test for their child.
Speech and Language Therapy
Speech therapy is provided for students who have difficulty
pronouncing sounds, stutter, or have a voice disorder. Language
therapy is provided for students who have delayed language or who
need vocabulary development. To be eligible to receive speech or
language therapy, each student who receives speech and/or language
therapy must be referred to the speech therapist and evaluated.
The parent meets with the speech therapist and discusses the
results of the evaluation. If the student's evaluation indicates
that speech and /or language therapy is needed, a plan is written
for the therapy. This plan is called the Individual Education Plan
(IEP). Each student who receives speech and/or language therapy
and goals for therapy. The speech therapist and classroom teacher
set a time that does not interfere with classroom activities for
the students to come to speech. Parents may request information
about their child's speech and language development by contacting
the speech therapist at Albany Elementary.
