Education Based Services

Questions to consider when determining your child’s eligibility:
  • Will the child’s condition respond to therapeutic intervention?Can another professional working with the child address the problem?
  • Has the child received the service previously and did they progress?
  • Are the child’s therapy goals observable directly related to the child’s educational goals?
  • What is the appropriate combination of direct and consultative services?
  • Are the issues related to the child’s therapy a priority in relation to other issues?
  • Does the child’s functional deficit reflect a significant delay relative to his or her peers?
