Child Find

Under IDEA, school districts have an obligation called "child find." This means the district has an obligation to identify each child within the district who is a child with a disability, whether or not the child is in public school, or is even school age. If your child has a disability, he or she is entitled to a free appropriate public education (FAPE). The process begins when someone requests an evaluation of the child.
