The Norwood City School District is participating in a statewide effort to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities from birth to age 21. Many children who need preschool classes have unidentified disabilites. For children from birth to age 2, a disability means that a child has a delay in one or more of the following areas: communication, cognitive ability, adaptive behavior, physical development, or social/emotional development.
For children ages 3 through 5 years old, a disability means that a child has a significant deficit in one or more of the following areas: communication, hearing, vision, motor functioning, adaptive behavior, or cognitive ability. For school-age children, a handicapping condition means having an identified handicap of the following conditions: orthopedic/health, speech and language, severe behavior, learning disabilites, developmental, hearing, visual, autism, or traumatic brain injury.
Anyone knowing of a child who may have a disability is asked to contact Special Education Services at 924-2500 or in writing at 2132 Williams Avenue, Norwood Ohio 45212.
