If you suspect your Preschool age child may have a disability or developmental delay, call the Preprimary Evaluation Team (PET) office at (269) 250-9670 or Early On office at (269) 250-9640.
Another valuable resource is Build Up, which helps young people ages 0-5 with physical, social, emotional and learning conditions, which prevent them from being successful in school. Please visit the Build Up website
