Child Study Team

 

All school districts are required to provide the services of a Child Study Team. It is the responsibility of the school district through the Child Study Team with parental consent to identify and, if appropriate, classify handicapped pupils between the ages of 3 and 21, and to develop an individualized educational program (IEP) for each child. A basic Child Study Team consists of a school psychologist, school social worker, and a learning disabilities teacher-consultant acting in consultation with a school physician and any other professionals deemed appropriate by the Child Study Team or by the chief school administrator.
