    Child Study Team
    The Child Study Team is an interdisciplinary group of professionals consisting of a School Psychologist, School Social Worker and Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (LDTC). The purpose of the Child Study Team is to respond to appropriate referrals from teachers and parents who believe an evaluation is necessary in order to identify if a child is eligible for special services.
