Child Find is a district responsibility that is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) that requires schools to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities residing within the State, regardless of the severity of their disabilities, and who are in need of special education and related services (34 CFR 300.111).
Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening, and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and evaluate children who are in need of Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) Programs or Special Education.
Beginning with the 3-year-old pre-k class, and throughout the remainder of the campuses in resource classes, the SAVE work program, life skills classes, and through inclusion in the regular classroom, the special education department serves students who have delays or difficulties in a wide range of areas. These areas include language/speech, hearing, vision, cognition, motor/physical development, behavior, and others.
