Every school district is mandated to identify children in their districts who have disabilities, ages 3 to 22. The preschool works with Lake County Job and Family Services and Help Me Grow to find and identify children ages 3 to 5 who have special needs. If you have questions about your child’s development and they are of preschool age, please contact Lisa Shields, Director of Special Education for Perry Local Schools at (440) 259-9200 x.9203. Information regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part C, Assessment and Screenings can be found at the link provided:
You are entitled to a screening to determine eligibility for services. If services are deemed necessary, a team will convene to develop goals for progress.
