Abstract

Purpose: Two studies are presented that evaluated the Communication Supports Inventory-Children & Youth (CSI-CY), an instrument designed to facilitate the development of communication-related educational goals for students with complex communication needs (CCN). The CSI-CY incorporates a code set based on the ICF-CY. The studies were designed to determine the effect of using the CSI-CY on IEP goals for students with CCN and to evaluate consumer satisfaction. Method: In Study 1, sixty-one educators and speech–language pathologists were randomly assigned to either (a) provide a student’s current IEP (control group) or (b) complete the CSI-CY prior to preparing a student’s next IEP and to submit the new IEP (experimental group). Study 2 was a field test to generate consumer satisfaction data. Results: Study 1 showed that IEP goals submitted by participants in the experimental group referenced CSI-CY-related content significantly more frequently than did those submitted by control participants. Study 2 revealed high satisfaction with the instrument. Conclusions: The code set basis of the CSI-CY extends the common language of the ICF-CY to practical educational use for children with CCN across diagnostic groups. The CSI-CY is well regarded as an instrument to inform the content of communication goals related to CCN.Implications for RehabilitationThe CSI-CY will guide rehabilitation professionals to develop goals for children with complex communication impairments.The CSI-CY is a new instrument that is based on the ICF-CY for documentation of communication goals.
