CHILD STUDY TEAM
The Child Study Team is comprised of individuals who are specialists in the area of educational disabilities. Members of the team include a School Psychologist, a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant and a School Social Worker. Their responsibility is to identify, evaluate, and determine whether a student is eligible for Special Education and Related Services. The Child Study Team also works closely with other school personnel and parent/guardians in the development and review of a student's Individualized Education Program (I.E.P.). Other specialists in the area of educational disabilities may include Speech-Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists,
Behavioral Therapists and School Nurses.
The Child Study Team evaluation typically consists of a social development/history reported by the parent/guardian to the school Social Worker, an assessment of the student's learning characteristics and academic achievement by the Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant and an evaluation of the child's potential for learning and social/emotional status by the School Psychologist. Based on the information gathered during this process, other evaluations may be recommended. Once a student is determined to be eligible for Special Education services, an Individualized Education Program (I.E.P.) is developed.
