Woodridge School District 68 is a member of SASED, the School Association for Special Education in DuPage County. SASED professionals work closely with District 68 staff in order to meet the needs of our students with disabilities.
If you have concerns about your child
If you have concerns regarding your student’s progress either academically or socially, the first person to contact is your child’s teacher. Do not hesitate to ask the teacher to involve other professionals if it seems warranted. All schools have a school social worker, school psychologist, Learning Behavior Specialists, and other related service providers. Members of this team will collaborate with you to identify next steps to address these concerns.
If your child is a pre-school student and you have concerns about his or her development, please contact the Student Services office at 630-795-6830. The District hosts regular screenings to identify preschool students who may need further evaluation.
