Supporting School-Age Kids with Special Needs
When your child turns three years old, your local school district begins to administer services for your child. But did you know that Summit DD is still available to offer school-age support to you and your child? We have Service and Support Administrators (SSAs) available, specifically for school-age children, to help you navigate your child’s individualize service plan, or IEP. We can connect you with community resources or even assist your child with adaptive equipment. Summit DD can even help fund summer camp opportunities when the school year ends. Discover a variety of resources available to you and your family, here at Summit DD. Let us be there to help guide you and your child throughout her school-age years.
Below are additional helpful resources for parents:
- Whose IDEA Is This: A Parent’s Guide
