Bilingual Preschool Evaluator
I currently serve the district as a special education evaluation team member for bilingual Spanish/English speaking students. I am fortunate to work with an amazing team of early childhood special education teachers, therapists and staff members who support young children with special needs. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions or concerns.

Does your preschool age child
have difficulty talking or pronouncing words properly?
have difficulty following directions or answering questions?
have trouble with difficult behaviors or a limited attention span?
have other developmental concerns or health problems?
Mesa Public Schools special education preschool programs provide free special education services to qualifying preschool age children. If you live in the Mesa Public School District and have concerns regarding your child's development, please call to (480) 472-0703 to schedule an appointment for a developmental screening. Screenings are available for children 33 months through 5 years of age who are not yet attending a kindergarten program. Please allow at least a 90 minute block of time for your preschool child to complete the screening process.
Developmental Screenings Include:
- vision screening
- hearing screening
- review of developmental information with parent/guardian
- screening of speech/language and developmental skills
- review of records from outside agencies
- review of screening results to determine if further evaluations are needed.
Screenings are scheduled by appointment at the MPS Student Services Center, 1025 N. Country Club Drive, Mesa, AZ 85201. Qualifying students have a variety of options for preschool placement. Whenever possible, students are placed in the closest program to the home school to receive special education services as outlined on the IEP.
