AISD to assess children 3-5

The Special Education Department of Aldine Independent School District offers free early childhood assessments for those children parents feel might need special education services between age 3 and 5.

In order to qualify for special education services at one of the four Pre-K/EC Centers the child must be tested and qualify with a handicapping condition. In order to qualify the child must have a severe deficit in cognition, articulation, language development, motor skills or physical limitations. The child might also have a hearing loss or vision impairment.

The process of referring and testing a child occurs year around. The goal of summer testing is to evaluate and have services ready to start the first day of the 2002-2003 school year.

If you feel that your child may qualify with a handicapping condition and would like your child tested please contact the Pre-K/EC Center in your attendance zone.

If you are unsure of which Pre-K/EC Center to contact please call Pat Fuller at 281-985-6167.
