You have selected a speech disability.
You will work in groups of three. Within the group, each of you will take on one
of the following roles:
1. Individually, you'll examine the sites below and jot down some notes of your opinions of each from the perspective of your role. Your task is to learn a little more about her problem, determine what would help Darla achieve her potential, and determine what would be considered reasonable accommodation. Each of your team members will research possible solutions while playing a role of one of the members of a multidisciplinary team. REMEMBER not to get out of character.
2. Your job will be to determine the best solution and present that solution to the principal of the school. The principal will ask you to justify the cost of the solution based on the benefit to the student and ask you about what kind of needs you will have for the implementation and evaluation of the proposed solution. He will also want to know his legal responsibility. Be prepared to speak to these issues
are a few resources to get you started. Hopefully they will lead you in many
5. When everyone in the group has seen all the sites, you will convene in the chat room to discuss the problem, alternative solutions and to come to agreement on the best solution for Darla's problem. You are encouraged to use these steps in your process:
probably not be unanimous agreement, so the next step is to talk together to
hammer out a compromise consensus about your team's recommendation. Pool your
perspectives and see if you can agree on what's best for everyone involved.
