Do you have a special needs child struggling in school due to a disability? It's important to know how to get them the help they require. A trained education advocate at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services in Lewisville, TX can determine if your child qualifies for special education services, like speech therapy and counseling.

If you live near Carrollton, Denton, Plano, Flower Mound, Irving, Little Elm, Frisco, Aubrey, or The Colony, TX, call BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services to schedule an appointment. We have experience working alongside independent school districts, charter schools, and private schools to provide state-of-the-art care.

What qualifies as a learning disability?

Children sometimes have trouble concentrating and controlling their behavior, leading to issues in school. A special needs child can be easily distracted or find it difficult to remember important dates and events. They may also have problems with their speech, language, behavior, or mood. This directly impacts their ability to learn at the same rate as other children.

It's essential to get help as soon as you notice a problem. Early intervention with an education advocate can help your child reach their full potential. They may benefit from services, like counseling, behavioral support, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and special education assessments, at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services.

Does my child qualify for special education services?

Any child with a medical, mental health, or behavioral condition that affects their academic performance could be considered for special education services. BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services can provide diagnostic testing to determine if your child has problems with regular learning, attention, speech and language development, behavior, or social skills.
