Mental health is just as important as physical health to a child's well-being.

Mental health is just as important as physical health to a child's well-being.

What if a child is not in school and the parent or caregiver thinks the child may have a mental health issue or disability?

If a child is less than three years old and it is suspected that he or she may have a disability or significant delays, the child may be referred to the state’s appropriate early intervention services. In Connecticut, the Birth to Three System offers a free evaluation.  If the child is over the age of three, the child may be referred by submitting the referral form or sending a letter to the special education director in the local school district.
