Special Education Department

  • Childfind Screening Applications
    Birth to age five preschool children not currently enrolled in the Grand Coulee Dam School District may be eligible for a free developmental screening. Interested parents should request forms for developmental screening and health inventory from Lake Roosevelt Elementary, Special Services Dept. It is especially important for a parent to complete the forms if they think their child may be developmentally delayed, i.e. be in need of occupational/physical or speech therapy, or other possible health problems that may impede a child from being ready for learning.
    Completed forms need to be returned to Lake Roosevelt Elementary, Special Services Department. After being submitted by parents/guardians, forms will be reviewed and a determination will be made as to whether the child needs to be scheduled for additional Childfind Screening and/or assessments. Parents/guardians will be notified of the results of the developmental screening as soon as possible. Parents/guardians of children considered in need of additional services will be notified to schedule further assessments.
    To request developmental screenings and health inventory forms please call Lyndsey Mitchell at 633-1442 ext. 318. Packets are also available to be picked up at the Lake Roosevelt Schools, Special Services Dept. If your family is living in a temporary situation, you may contact the district where you are currently staying for a screening.
