Speech services are provided for children who qualify through Midland County Educational Service Agency. A speech and language therapist is on-site at least 2 days each week to provide services to children who live in Midland County (though any children who attend any of the programs at the Early Childhood Center may be eligible to receive these services). Children in any of our programs have a very easy transition in receiving these services.
