    Child Find is the process of identifying and assessing children from birth to 21 years old who may have developmental delays, be at risk of having a developmental delay due to a diagnosed medical condition, or who have an educational disability. Our team may consist of an early childhood special educator, a speech pathologist, a school psychologist, and/or a school nurse. We also provide audiological, motor, and behavioral services as needed.

    For children birth to three, our Child Find process is done in collaboration with the Resource Exchange. Please call them to make a referral at 719.380-1100. At the District 49 Early Childhood Center, we evaluate children who are 3-5 years old, who are not yet enrolled in preschool. For children who are already enrolled in either preschool or elementary school, please contact your child's teacher. For middle school and high school students, please contact the school psychologist or counselor.
