If your child is having difficulty in school, contact your school and discuss your concerns. We believe in the relationship between the student and teacher and encourage any parent with a learning concern to begin a conversation with the teacher. The teacher can work through the concerns with you and develop strategies to help your student be successful. If progress is still not begin made, the parent may want to meet with the school principal and/or school counselor to determine the next step. 

If you are a parent of a child between the ages of 2 1/2 -5 and feel that your child is experiencing difficulties in language, social/emotional skills, motor/perceptual skills, or cognitive development, please contact the Special Education Director for further support.
