Build Up - MI Kids. Kindergarten Ready.

There are many milestones your child will demonstrate between ages 3 and 5 that help to determine the rate of his or her development. As a parent, you want to prepare your child for everything. If you notice that he or she may have a developmental delay, call Build Up for help. Build Up offers free services for children ages 3 through 5 years, right where they learn; in their environment, at their speed, for their future.

Build Up helps you address issues such as speech difficulties, learning disabilities, and social skills. We understand that children sometimes require additional support while they learn to read, write, speak, share and interact.

If your child is experiencing development delays, contact Build Up today by calling the MI Special Education Information line at 1-888-320-8384, or by contacting the Lenawee Intermediate School District. You can also visit the Build Up website.
