Child Find Information and Processes

  • When a public agency or parent suspects that a child may be a child with a disability, he/she shall provide in writing the reason for referral, addressing the specific presenting concerns and the child’s current strengths and needs. This referral shall be given to the principal of the school, the child’s teacher or other school professional, or the Superintendent or other appointed official of the LEA. For preschool children with disabilities, the referral may also be given to the person designated as the person in charge of services for preschool children with disabilities. 

    As a parent, if you suspect your child may be a child with a disability, please contact the school principal or assistant principal. You can also submit your written referral to the EC Facilitator who supports your child’s school or provide the referral to the EC Executive Director or elementary or secondary EC Directors.
