What is Child Find?
Child Find is a part of the federal Individuals
with Disabilities Education Act. Child Find is
a way for the LA State Department of Education
and local school districts to find children who
may need special education services. Child Find is
a way to help parents know what to do if they
think their child may have a special learning
problem or disability.
West Feliciana School District may be able to help
a child who has a learning problem or disability.
With parental permission, services could include:
~ Free screening to learn if the child should be tested.
~ If screening indicates, an evaluation to see what
type of help the child may need.
~ If the evaluation finds the child to need services,
services may include free special education
instruction, speech services, OT, PT, and/or
social work services.
