Language and Speech Program: This is for students who have been assessed as having a language or speech disorder that makes him or her eligible for special education and related services.  The student must demonstrate difficulty understanding or using spoken language to such an extent that it adversely affects his or her educational performance and cannot be corrected without special education and related services. The disorder is not due to unfamiliarity with English.
