What is Child Find?
Are you interested in having your child screened?
We have FDLRS Child Find Specialist located in 19 centers around Florida ready to help.
Child Find assists parents and schools in the early identification of children who are at risk of developing special or unique needs and who are not being served in a public school. Child Find's target age group is birth through 21 years, but primary emphasis is placed on children birth to 5 years of age.
Child Find also provides information about community programs and professional consultation for parents and providers. Awareness and outreach activities ensure that the public receives ongoing, consistent information about Child Find and how to access services for children with special needs and/or other early intervention services. Information is provided on an individual basis or through community presentations and events.
The phone number for the Child Find Specialist in your area and informational videos explaining the Child Find program are available on the Child Find page.
