Are you concerned about your child's developmental progress?
Do you feel that they might be behind with their speech, developmental progress or social skills?
As part of Child Find we conduct testing on a monthly basis during the school year to identify children who qualify for special education services. Contact Preschool Coordinator Tina Herbert at 435-744-2468 to set up a testing date.
Children who qualify for special education services at the district preschool attend without tuition payments and will receive district transportation.
What is Child Find?
Children with special needs can often benefit from a number of therapies and, generally, the sooner they receive treatment, the better the outcomes will be. But, how do you know if a child needs help? The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to implement early identification policies to locate and refer children who may have a disability to that state’s Early Intervention program (EI). Although IDEA is a federal law, each state sets its own EI policies and implements its own programs, much like Medicaid. Not all states will call it early intervention or EI, but states generally use similar terms meaning early identification and service for children with disabilities.
