School Age Supports

Many school-age children who do not attend our schools are supported by agency staff in collaboration with their local public schools. Public schools offer services for children with disabilities who do not qualify for services through HCDDS schools.

The Hamilton County DD Services Itinerant Support Team collaborates with school-based teams to support children with developmental disabilities and moderate to intensive needs in their community schools. Services include observations, special team meeting participation, strength-based curriculum recommendations, classroom organization and structural support, visual supports training, crisis prevention and management support and more.

To receive services, the student must be a resident of Hamilton County with a current Individualized Education Program (IEP) and Evaluation Team Report (ETR). Referral forms must be completed with consent from the child's guardian and support team.

For more information, contact staff psychologist Lauren Jones, (513) 559-4336 or lauren.jones@hamiltondds.org.
