Each DCS has a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) on staff. Contact your child's school and ask to speak to the SLP. He/She will be happy to answer your questions regarding speech services and how they may assist in determining if your child needs a speech-language assessment.
Preschool-age children (ages 3-5) are assessed through our district's Preschool Assessment Team. Contact Emily Ballard, Coordinator of Speech-Language-Hearing Impaired Services, at 662-449-7192 for the necessary paperwork and information.
