Child Find


This service focuses on assisting districts in performing Child Find functions including public awareness, referral, and resource identification. The Child Find program is the first point of contact beyond the local district for parents and agencies seeking services for students with disabilities. Interagency collaboration is a feature of this program to increase services available to students.
