Recommendation for a Speech-Language Review

Parents should first discuss any speech and language concerns with the child's teacher.  Teachers will then consult, discuss and provide documentation of the educational impact of any speech issues with the Speech/Language Specialist.

Parental procedures for referring students for speech/language services are listed on the Project CHILD FIND Link.  Referral letters written to the Speech/Language specialist must specify that the request is for a Speech Referral ONLY.  This will assist the Special Education Office and the Specialist to schedule meetings.
