Special Education Services > Eligibility for Special Education Services
The Souderton Area School District conducts ongoing Child-Find activities for the purpose of identifying students who may be in need of special education and related services. Additionally, teachers who suspect a child may need services can make a referral to the Student Support Team (SST) to explore regular education supports and classroom modifications. Multi-disciplinary evaluations (MDE) follow for those not making sufficient progress with SST supports. All information gathered under this process is confidential and may be available to the parent on request.
Parents can also request an evaluation regardless of whether their child attends public, private, or parochial school. Parents who have concerns about the development of their three to five year old child can call the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit Early Intervention Office at 610-539-8500 to request a screening or an evaluation.
For further information on the screening, evaluation procedures, and provision of services to exceptional students, parents can contact one of the Special Education Supervisors:
