Abstract

This article describes the evolution of the early intervention process for children with speech and language needs in Tennessee and the impact of recent legislative changes in IDEA-2004 and NCLB on this process. Response to intervention (RTI) models have dramatically influenced new service delivery models and the roles of school-based clinicians. Future challenges for educational speech-language pathologists in developing collaborative partnerships and problem-solving team approaches with general and special educators are considered.
