“Child Find” is a legal requirement that schools find all children who have disabilities and who may be entitled to special education services. In Michigan, Child Find covers every child from birth through age 25. The school must evaluate any child that it knows or suspects may have a disability.
This process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation is designed to locate as early as possible all children with disabilities who are in need of early intervention and special education services.
