Do you have concerns about your child's development?
As you watch your child grow, you may become concerned about your child’s development. While all young children grow and change at their own rate, sometimes you may have concerns that your child is developing differently than other children the same age as your child. If you have concerns about your child's development, we would love to hear from you! Shakopee Schools has teams to support families and children from birth to kindergarten. Please contact us if you have concerns about any areas of development!
Detailed information about child development is available on the Help Me Grow website: http://helpmegrowmn.org/HMG/index.htm

HOW DO I MAKE A REFERRAL?
There are several ways to make a referral if you have concerns about your child's development.

Other Methods for Referral
Phone: 952-496-5870 or 952-496-5860
When making a referral, please include your child's name, date of birth, and a description of your concern. Once a referral is made to the local early intervention program, the family will be contacted to arrange for a screening or evaluation to determine if your child is eligible for infant and toddler intervention or preschool special education services.
