Child Find is a process designed to identify, locate, and evaluate individuals from birth to 21 years of age who may need special education and related services. To be eligible for special education services, students must meet eligibility requirements as a student with an orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, auditory impairment, visual impairment, diagnosis of deaf/blind, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, learning disability, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, autism, non-categorical early childhood, or traumatic brain injury, and as a result of the disability, must need special education and related services to benefit from education.
If you are concerned that your child may have a disability, contact your local school district or charter school for more information about the Child Find process.
