There are many different ways to go about finding what your child needs and what the school may or must do to help him(her). Generally, it is important to make a request in writing(Be sure and keep a DATED copy of all correspondence sent to the school) for a referral to whatever committee or system is designed for children who are suspected of having a disability or handicap even if you do not quite know much about that child will be fine, rather than finding the correct process to actually help the child. Sometimes the person you tell does not know what you are asking or how to get the needed evaluation or services. You may prefer to contact an advocate who can navigate this complex process.
