This bill would create a speech-language therapy program. The summary of the bill states that it will require that "all compulsory-school-age children be screened for speech-language impairment during the period between the spring of kindergarten and the fall of grade 1 and other appropriate times as deemed necessary in the public schools of this state." The actual language of the bill in section 8 says that each school district will ensure that screening is done. It is unclear whether the intent of the bill is to require screening of nonpublic school students such as those in a home instruction program.
This bill should be opposed in its current form.
