FDLRS Child Find, in coordination with the school districts, locates children who are potentially eligible for services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and links them with needed services.
Child Find services help to promote general public awareness of programs and services available for young children who have or are at risk of developing disabilities. Service coordination for diagnostic screening, placement, training, and support is also provided.
For more information on Child Find services in your area, contact your local FDLRS Associate Center. Select your school district under the Find A Center menu on the left side of the screen or by selecting the name of your FDLRS Associate Center in the Local Service menu.
