Child FindChild Find is a process to “find” children who may have a delay in development or a disability. Emery School District along with other local agencies can provide help for children with disabilities born birth through 21 years of age. Personnel provide early intervention, special education services and Section 504/ADA accommodations for eligible children. Child Find services are a not cost.
If your child is under three (3) year old, Early Intervention, a home-based program, will arrange to discuss your concerns with you and evaluate your child.
For children ages three (3) through five (5), local school personnel use a screening tool to check your child’s development or performance in the following acres that affect development and learning in school:
• Person –Social
If you know of a student in Kindergarten trough the age of 21 who has major difficulty with attendance, organizational skills, learning or understanding, speaking or writing, getting along with others, making adjustment in different situations or completing tasks, this difficulty may be a result of a disability. Emery School District is looking for any students who might have difficulties resulting from a disability who might need special education services in order to succeed in school.
