CHILD FIND

PROJECT CHILD FIND
Children (ages 3-21)
Including migrant and homeless children

REGION III COUNCIL FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION

Region III schools are sponsoring a Child Find campaign to locate and provide services for unserved/underserved youth, including migrant and homeless children with a delay or disability from birth through twenty-one years of age. Children may exhibit physical, mental, language or emotional difficulties. Local District’s Child Study Teams provide screening, evaluation, guidance services and, if a child is found eligible, educational programs. These are provided free for those who need services.

How to Obtain Assistance for Special Education and 504 Services

If you would like to request an evaluation for your child, please send a written request for an evaluation to your public school district child study team office. Please include your child’s name, age, address and suspected disability and your contact information.

After your request is received, your local district will set up an appointment. The team will decide at the time of the appointment whether an evaluation is needed.
