If a student is having academic, social, speech, or motor problems, referral is made to the building principal, guidance counselor, reading specialist and classroom teachers who make changes in the student’s program. If improvement is not demonstrated, special education testing is conducted by the Special Education/Evaluation Placement team to determine if a student is educationally handicapped and eligible for special education services.

Related services (speech therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling) are also available to educationally handicapped students.
