For preschoolers, warning signs that may prompt the need to consider evaluation for special education may include (but are not limited to) markedly delayed language, physical, and/or social abilities. If your child has these or other concerns contact Child Find.

For school-age students, significant difficulties with learning may prompt discussions with teachers about the possible need to refer a student to the Student Success Team.
