Screening & Evaluation

Screening & Evaluation

Overview

The mission of the Westborough Public Schools Student Services Department is "to support all students in the least restrictive environment and to foster a vision of success and attainment". Westborough Schools provides a wide range of student support services for children ages 3-5, who reside in Westborough. These services may include evaluation, consultation, individual and group therapy sessions to address specific needs (e.g. speech and language, physical therapy, etc.), and specially designed instruction in classroom settings. The exact type and frequency of services, if your child is found eligible for an IEP, is always determined at the Team meeting.

 

Monitoring and Consultation

Many children benefit from consultation to their community preschool, and various members of the staff, depending on the child’s area of need, can provide this. Some children are not eligible for special education services, but are regularly monitored through classroom observation or phone check-ins to be sure their development continues as expected.
