Prior to any new patient scheduling with the Child Study Center, please talk to your child’s pediatrician about your concerns first, then complete STEP #1 and STEP #2 below.

If you would like to speak directly to our staff, please call our offices at 682-303-9200.

Step 1: Get early screening & evaluation.

Birth to 3 years old

Contact Early Childhood Intervention (ECI). This is a low-cost statewide program that will determine if your child is eligible for speech, occupational and/or physical therapy services.

3 years and older

Contact your local public school district or principal of your local grade school. School districts may offer speech therapy or education services if your child qualifies.

  • The director of special education for your district may make a referral for assessment.
  • Services are available for children and young adults with a disability, ages 3 through 21.

Step 2: Explore Child Study Center

Once you have completed the first two steps, discover why we may be a perfect fit for your child.
