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, have comprehensive knowledge of TEA's special education guidelines and help support the Child Find, Evaluation and ARD Supports Network.
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.
The Child Find, Evaluation and ARD Supports Network 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 Child Find Public Awareness page to learn more and download the posters.
