Quoting Just Ames:" Even if they are not enrolled in the school?"


Yep. Because they are still in that school district, even when they aren't yet in a specific school.

Same question as above, even when he is not registered or enrolled? I wasn't aware they provide outside service to the public. I would think that would have been told when I inquired :?

This!!! DS stutters and elongates 21% of his words and he qualified.
The school district here evaluated him in 5 areas: Speech, self help, fine motor, gross motor, and one other that I can't remember. There's standardization for each test that would make him qualify for PT, OT, or ST.

Well I'll be damned :? How convenient to leave that out (who I spoke to). I'm going to call the school and inquire with them directly. (I spoke to a teacher in the district)

You would enroll him after the EIP is drafted.

Since we are in the same area I'm going to assume this will apply with you as well. I took my son for his 3 year check up last year with his pedi. They told me that they thought that he needed ST and gave me a paper with a number to call to be evaluated and said that if those people said he needed it then he would get to go twice a week to my closest elem school for speech therapy. Now we aren't on any gov assistance and we do not qualify for headstart or prek, mind you, so I'm assuming if this would be available for you as well. We ended up not taking him though (our own choice after getting a second opinion from his main pedi in that office),

And he would start next year (for school), right? This is just for speech alone, correct?



Sorry for asking so many questions :x

The school district opens up to those children who need IEP's at age 3. As soon as they hit their third birthday they can start services.

They'd put him in head start and pull him out for each therapy that he qualifies for. For DS they were going to send him to ST twice a week for 30 mins.

Texas Childrens did not offer this, mention it -nothing. They called to see if I got the denial of coverage letter from our insurance company and she was just like "yeah, sorry". WTF :x So I need to call the school then? I had TX Children's mail me their evaluation so I just call and tell them we were denied and I'd like him to be evaluated?

Yes, even when not in school. As long as they living within the bounds of the district and are over 3, they fall under the care of the school district. I would ask to speak to someone else. They may not know, since a lot of people don't know that. We were helped with it all since she was in early intervention (so I had a person in charge of her case who helped facilitate everything with the district) but the district did everything. The meeting to go over all the results included all the nurses and people who did Evals and the principle of the school we would have gone to if she were already in school, as well as a few others from the district. Sometimes people can sort of shuffle parents aside, if they think they're being paranoid honestly. It's sad, but it's true. Sometimes it takes a bit of work to get them to listen, but I'd keep asking if I were you.

Not all teachers know the protocols.
