What is Child Find?
Child Find is a legally required, important first step to locating and evaluating children from birth to 21 years of age with disabilities or suspected disabilities and their possible need for special education and related services.
It's a free referral and information service available through schools and at our center. Our child find specialists understand the legal framework and have comprehensive knowledge of TEA's special education guidelines. Additional information on Child Find can be found on the Texas Sped Supports site.
If you're concerned that your child may be learning, playing or interacting differently from others, please call the special education department of your school, campus, or district, or one of our Child Find specialists.
TEA has created a fillable PDF poster for LEAs to print and post on their campuses and around their district. This poster is available in English and Spanish. Visit the Texas Sped Supports site to learn more and download the posters.
