The intent of
Child Find under both federal and state requirements is to ensure that all
children ages birth - 21 years with delays or disabilities are identified,
located and evaluated in order to receive needed early intervention supports or
special education services. Public agencies responsible for providing these
supports and services are obligated to actively search to "find"
children who may be eligible and conduct an eligibility determination process
that includes screening and evaluation according to state established
criteria. For more information on this subject, please call the ADE/Child
Find Unit at 1-800-352-4558 or the DES/AzEIP Office at 1-888-439-5609. You can

If you feel that your child has an
educational disability or if they are of preschool age and have a delay contact
the Learning Support Services Department at (623) 474-6671. For children ages
birth to three years of age, call the Arizona Early Intervention Program at (602) 532-9960.
