The Child Find Process

Child Find

    For more information concerning eligibility criteria and the referral process, contact the counselor or Student Support Team (SST) leader of your neighborhood school or the Lubbock ISD Special Services Department at (806) 219-0400. 


    Child Find is a federally established comprehensive system designed to ensure that each child, regardless of disability, is educated toward his or her maximum potential.

    The purpose of Child Find is to locate, identify, and evaluate infants, children, and young adults through age 21 who may have a developmental delay or other disabilities.

    Lubbock ISD offers comprehensive special education services to eligible students ages three through 21 years and to children from birth through 21 years who have a hearing or visual impairment. Children from birth to age three with other disabilities will be referred to appropriate agencies for services.

    All referrals are considered confidential, and services are provided at no cost.

    A free, appropriate, public education with a full continuum of services is available.

    If your child is determined to be a child with a disability, Lubbock ISD will assist you in developing appropriate special education services designed to meet your child's educational needs.
