Sometimes young children need special support in their early years to help them grow and learn with more success. ISD 318 Early Childhood Special Education offers a variety of services at no cost to children and their families: information and referral; screening; evaluation; special education classes and related services under FAPE (Free and Appropriate Education laws); and coordination of services, which might include specialized instruction, assistive technology, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychological services and more. If you are concerned that your child may not be playing, talking, growing, moving or acting like most other children of the same age, free and confidential help is available.

Screening includes:  Height, Weight, Vision, Hearing , General development, Health History and an Immunization Review
If potential problems are identified, your child will receive appropriate follow-up or be connected with resources in the school and community.  Your child will automatically be enrolled into a school district at the time of screening.
