Speech and Testing

Please be aware of your students' articulation errors when testing and spelling. Children with articulation errors will make the same errors during reading, spelling and letter sound assessments. If the articulation error is documented via an IEP and it is a consistent error, the error does not count against the child. This is because it is not an error due to lack of knowledge it is an error due to the articulation delay. If you have any questions, please email Ms. Mathews at .
