Child Find Testing for Non-BSD Students
If your child attends a non-public (private or parochial) school located within the Brandywine School District your child may be qualified for special education services provided by BSD. If your child is having academic and/or speech difficulties, you may request an evaluation at no cost to you to determine if they are eligible. The evaluation process includes detailed Response to Intervention documentation from your child's current school. Please contact the Child Find Office at 793-5063 to ask for your child to be evaluated.
Once the evaluation is completed, you will attend a meeting to discuss your child's case and determine if s/he is eligible to receive special education services. If your child needs speech/language services, BSD may provide those through a Speech Service Plan. If your child is eligible for other services, they are provided through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) available at a Brandywine School District school. In order to receive those services, your child needs to be enrolled in a BSD public school.
If you reside within the Brandywine School District but your child attends a private or parochial school located in another school district, please contact that district for help with the evaluation process.
