Documentation for SLPs and Audiologists in Schools
If it’s not documented, it didn’t happen! Federal mandates, including IDEA, FERPA, NCLB, and HIPAA, plus state and local requirements for accountability, are driving increasing paperwork demands. This program reviews basic documentation requirements and clarifies what the federal mandates do—and do not—require. Techniques for efficient compliance are emphasized, and special attention is given to documenting emerging trends in service delivery and to understanding the elements of legal defensibility.
You will be able to:
- relate federal regulatory requirements to the documentation demands of your job
- integrate documentation requirements with emerging trends in service delivery
- discuss documentation methods that ensure compliance and promote legal defensibility
