Child Find is the process for identifying, locating and evaluating all children with disabilities, aged birth to 21, who are in need of early intervention or special education services.
Steilacoom Historical School District provides developmental screenings to children between the ages of three and five to identify possible delays in language, motor, cognitive or social-emotional development. Additionally, IDEA requires that homeless preschoolers and all homeless children be included in the “Child Find” process for early identification of special education needs. If you have questions or concerns about your preschooler's development, or to refer a child for evaluation, contact Child Find at the Student Services Office 253.983.2228 to schedule an appointment.
For students age five through 21 who may have a suspected disability, call your local school and ask for the school psychologist or the school counselor.
