Parents that have children ages 3-5 who have concerns that their child may be in need of special education services may complete the child find referral form that can be accessed by clicking on the Child Find Referral Form link or by contacting Melanie Amburn, Special Education Supervisor (865-458-5411, ext 1005).
Parents who have educational concerns about school age children who do attend public school can access special education services by contacting the principal of their student’s zoned home school or the Special Education Supervisor for more information. Child referral will be made to the school’s Support Team to review the referral, develop interventions to be attempted in the general education classroom, design methods to obtain data to determine if the interventions are successful or not, collect data, and make referrals for additional evaluations/assessments as needed.
