Special Education

LPS places a high value on supporting every student to meet their learning potential. Students with disabilities, preschool through age 21, receive support in all district schools. A priority is to include every student in general education while recognizing and meeting individual needs through special education resources.

LPS Child Find Team provides free developmental screenings for newborns and children up to five years of age who show delays in development that could interfere with their education and learning. Families must live within the District boundaries to access these services.

All LPS schools provide identification services to determine a student’s eligibility for special education services. If you are concerned about your child, please contact your school directly.

Each school site has a Learning Support Services team of professionals that can vary according to the needs of students in the building. Additionally, the District has a variety of center-based programs designed to provide more intensive support.

Child Find

The Littleton Public Schools Child Find Team offers FREE developmental screenings for newborns and children up to five years of age who show delays in development that could interfere with their education and learning.  The team consists of an occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, and a school psychologist.  The screening provides general information about a child's current speech/language, motor, social, and pre-academic skills.  It takes approximately one hour.

Following the screening, parent's will receive feedback from the Child Find Team.  If screening results indicate possible delays in development, the Child Find Team will recommend further assessment.  Screenings are not an assessment for Kindergarten readiness.

Parents who have concerns about their child's development should call 303-347-6980 for an appointment.

Screenings are held at:

The Village at North
1907 West Powers Avenue
Littleton, CO 80120
