    Child Study Team
    The Child Study Team is an interdisciplinary group of professionals consisting of School Psychologists, School Social Workers, Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultants (LDTC), Speech Therapists, and Occupational Therapist. 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.
