Overview

Each district is required to have a child find process to inform the public and to identify children ages birth to 21 who may be eligible to receive special education services. The District Child Find Assessment Team is a district level team that provides quality, child focused screenings and evaluations for children birth-5 and supports building level teams for students in grades K-12. Evaluation referrals come from a variety of sources including: families, community agencies, child care, preschools, medical providers and school staff. The School District of residence for any child ages birth through 21 is required to "Child Find" students who may have an educational disability as defined by the Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act.
