  • Child Find

    Child Find is a federally established comprehensive system designed to assure 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.

    LISD 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, LISD will assist you in developing appropriate special education services designed to meet your child's educational needs. For more information concerning eligibility criteria and the referral process, contact the counselor/SST leader of your neighborhood school or the Special Education Department.
