What is Child Find?

  • Child Find is the process of locating and evaluating children with disabilities. IDEA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, requires all school districts to locate, evaluate and provide services for students birth to 21 who have a qualifying disability. 

    If you suspect that your child may have a disability, you may contact the following:
