DCF licensing specialists conduct onsite reviews of facility compliance with Residential Care Centers (RCC) requirements, including the following requirements relating to educating children with disabilities:
The specific eligibility criteria for speech and language under state law is found at PI 11.36 (5) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has developed a technical assistance guide to assist IEP teams in evaluating children to determine if they have speech and language impairment and need for special education due to the impairment.
This training is a self-paced, internet version of the CESA-based Level I training; the training uses the Wisconsin TBI Training Curriculum, developed for educators and families interested in learning how to meet the needs of children with traumatic brain injury within the school setting. Training activities include presentation of information as well as application of concepts.
The State Performance Plan (SPP) represents the Department of Public Instruction's (DPI) plan for improving outcomes of children with disabilities in Wisconsin. The SPP also supports the goals of State Superintendent Ever’s commitment to “Every Child a Graduate.” Every child must graduate ready for further education and the workforce. We must align our efforts so our students benefit from both college and career preparation, learning the skills and knowledge necessary to be contributing members of our communities.
