Intended Audience: Special Education Directors and Coordinators, Special Education Teachers and Related Service Providers

Date: September 28, 2007

As promised in a SELS message dated September 25, 2007, the Division of Special Education has developed an FAQ to answer questions we have received from the field regarding the recently posted State Normative Data for Sound System Disorder (SSD) and the use of that data as well as other considerations when making eligibility determinations under the categorical label of Sound System Disorder.

The FAQ can be accessed at the following web address:  http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/PDF/SSQA.pdf.

We hope the information contained in this document clarifies the process for identifying children as eligible under the category of SSD. We will continue to add to our guidance regarding SSD eligibility determination
as we receive further questions from the field.
