Child Find is part of the district's Special Education program. We act as a resource for families who are residents of Douglas County. Our Child Find teams offer developmental assessments at no charge to young children from birth through age five.
Child Find teams include multi-disciplinary specialists. Teams work with children and their families and conduct screenings and/or evaluations to determine eligibility for services.
Children ages birth to three who demonstrate a significant delay in development may be eligible for services through Developmental Pathways, a non-profit agency.
Children ages three up to age five are assessed to determine if they are eligible for special education services through the DCSD Early Childhood Preschool program.
