Child Find Helps Identify Children with Disabilities.
Under the federal IDEA law, each school district has an obligation to engage in Child Find, a process for identifying, locating, and evaluating all children with disabilities residing in the school district’s jurisdiction. This means that each district will work with families and community entities to locate and make an initial identification of any child within the district’s boundaries who is age 0 through 2 with a life impacting disability or who is age 3 through 21 who may have a disability that would have an educational impact for that child.
It is important to understand that the process can look different depending on the age of the child. For more information contact local Coordinator Cindy MacIsaac at 719-293-4613 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
