§ 5711. Legislative finding; declaration of policy
Defects in speech and hearing are health-related. They are also the frequent cause of emotional instability in children and are vitally connected to behavior and to learning ability. Services to remedy these defects can best be connected upon the premises of the school which the child regularly attends, and forcing children to go to other premises in order to have such needed services is found by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to be both inadequate and harmful. The General Assembly expressly finds and declares speech and hearing correctional services to be health services, and it is the intention of the General Assembly now to make these available, on a general and evenhanded basis to all school children in the Commonwealth.
