Referral Process

The FDLRS/UF Multidisciplinary Diagnostic & Training Program is one of six regional Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS) Multidisciplinary Educational Services Centers funded by the State of Florida Department of Education, Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services (BEESS) that serve children and youth with complex learning, behavioral, medical, and socio-emotional problems, their parents, teachers, and schools.

At-risk and struggling students can be referred to the program by their families, schools, health professionals, and/or state and local agencies by contacting FDLRS/UF MDTP at (352) 294-8248 .

Parents, teachers, and other school personnel will be asked to complete a referral packet to provide pertinent information about the student’s educational background, school attendance, current and prior interventions and response to interventions, prior evaluations, mental health, and medical history. This referral information allows for initial determination of specific evaluation and consultation needs. Subsequently, UF MDTP’s multidisciplinary staff collaborate with parents, schools, and healthcare and related providers in developing and implementing a plan and specific interventions to improve student engagement, learning, and outcomes.
