Child Find—Developmental Screening Fairs
 
 
How is your child developing? Do you suspect your child may have a disability? What is Child Find?
 
It’s a process to “find” children who may have a delay in development or a disability in any of the following areas: 
  • Vision/Hearing
  • Motor Control or Coordination
  • Behavior or Social Skills
  • Speech or Language Skills
  • Thinking or Performing Tasks
  • Adaptive Behavior

 The Arizona Early Intervention Program and local schools can help children with disabilities from birth through 21 years old.  They provide early intervention and special education services for eligible children.  There are no costs for Child Find services.

How does Child Find work? 

If your child is under 3 years old, an Arizona Early Intervention specialist will come to your home to talk with you about your concerns and observe your child. 

For children ages 3 through 5, the preschool team uses screening tools for a quick check of your child’s development or performance in the areas that can affect development and learning in school. If a possible delay is suspected then a full evaluation will be scheduled.

For children in kindergarten through eighth-grade, your child’s teacher and other school professionals can support your child through problem solving and interventions. If a disability is suspected, assessments can be administered to determine eligibility for special education services. 

Who do I contact for additional information?

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Exceptional Student Services for Sacaton Elementary School District at (520) 562-8600 ext. 2030 or Child Development and Education Support Services at (520) 562-3882.
