Child Find

  • Picture of people circle What is Child Find?
    Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of an Early Intervention Program (Part C) or Early Childhood Special Education (Part B) services of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
     
    Who is eligible for Child Find?
    Whether your child is home-schooled, educated in a private or religiously affiliated school, or in the public school, our Special Services Department would like everyone in our West Ada community to be aware that all children, ages 3 through 21, are entitled to support if they are eligible for special education services. Support may include evaluations, assessments, services or consultation.
