Special Education Evaluation
A Special Education Evaluation is specifically for when caretakers have a concern about a child's development. These concerns are reported through caretakers, Head Start, Pre-K, medical providers, ECFE, social workers, or an Early Childhood Screening to Help Me Grow. The Help Me Grow referrel then is processed through ECSE and an evaluation takes place. This evaluation helps determine if a child is eligible for ECSE services.
If you have concerns about your child's development, please contact Help Me Grow at 1-866-GROW or online at Help Me Grow
