What is Child Find?
The Child Find process includes activities designed to identify, locate and evaluate children (ages birth to 26) suspected of having a disability.
How Does Child Find Work?
Schools work closely with community service agencies, parents and other organizations/providers to locate children with disabilities, including those in private schools, homeschools, or are currently homeless.
Why is Child Find Important?
It helps the child, parents and providers plan appropriate services and links parents to services for students who meet specific eligibility criteria at no cost to the family.
