The University of Miami, Linda Ray Intervention Center is one of six regional Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS) Multidisciplinary Educational Services Centers.  Our center provides diagnostic evaluation, consultation, technical assistance, and pre-service and in-service training to families, teachers, school district personnel, and community support providers concerning children and youth with complex medical, emotional, or behavioral problems.   

The key elements of service include providing families, school systems, community stakeholders, and collaborative partners with service delivery, training, and informational products related to the identification, evaluation, and appropriate educational programming of early learners. The center’s goals support the indicators within the BEESS Strategic Plan and the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) Strategic Performance Plan to prepare students with disabilities enrolled in public K-12 programs for high academic achievement and successful postsecondary outcomes.

The network of six regional FDLRS Multidisciplinary Education Services Centers across the state is part of a Florida statewide program of comprehensive services for children.

FDLRS is funded by the Florida Department of Education, Division of Public Schools, and Bureau of Exceptional Student Education, through federal assistance under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Part B and State General Revenue funds.
