Meet Stephanie Lee!

All children receive a developmental screening within forty five (45) calendar days of their enrollment date. The screening process helps to identify children who may require interventions. Intervention goals are determined by the skills the child showed difficulty completing during the developmental screening. After interventions are completed, data is reviewed to determine if the child needs a referral for a special education evaluation.

If the child needs a referral for a special education evaluation, Children younger than the age of three (3) will be referred to First Steps. Children ages three and older will be referred to the appropriate school district. Evaluations can not be completed without parental consent.

When/if a child meets eligibility, we can help parents access the services their child may need. Early Head Start and Head Start collaborates with First Steps and the Public School System so Therapist (Speech Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, etc.) can come to your child at Early Head Start or Head Start to provide services.
