Roanoke County Public Schools actively and continuously seek to identify, locate and evaluate children, ages 2 to 21, who may need special education and related services. If you suspect that your child is delayed in any area of development, you may request a referral to Child Study through the school principal or the supervisor of special education to determine if further evaluation is necessary. Although different rates of development may be found during a child’s normal development, the following may indicate areas of concern that should be discussed with school personnel:
Slow or uneven rate of development
Speech, hearing or vision problems
Behavioral or emotional difficulties
Special health needs
Delays in motor development (running, walking, jumping)
Referrals may come from parents, state and local professionals, school principals, teachers, doctors, social workers, community agencies or other concerned community persons.
