Subject: Sound System Disorder Eligibility

Intended Audience: Directors of Special Education

Date: September 4, 2007

The 2007 Missouri State Plan for Special Education requires districts to use "state designated normative data" to determine eligibility for children under the Sound System Disorder category. At the current time, the Department is working with organizations and individuals across the state to develop the normative data for district use. We are hopeful this process will be completed soon and the norms will be available to the districts. Until the state norms are published, districts should continue to use the normative criteria that they previously used to determine eligibility for Sound System Disorder.

As soon as the state norms are published and ready for use, districts will be notified through SELS.
