Cooperative agreements in which school districts merge resources to serve handicapped students have created large staffs of speech, hearing, and language clinicians who should be assigned to schools on a fair and equal basis. This paper is a description of a systematic method that may be used to make these assignments. The method is based on a modified weight-factor system that considers each specialist’s available time as well as differences in school populations. Although the method was developed to meet the needs in the Porter County (Indiana) Speech, Hearing, and Language Program, it may be adapted to other programs.
