Child Find

“Child Find” is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of Early Intervention Program (Part C) or Preschool Special Education (Part B) services of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

In Michigan, Child Find activities are coordinated by Early On (birth-age 3) and local school district Child Find Coordinators (ages 3-26).
