Child Find

Are you concerned about your child’s speech, learning, behavior, or development?

What is Child Find?
Child Find is a process required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to identify, locate, and evaluate all children from birth through 21 years of age who may have disabilities and may need early intervention or special education services. It is an ongoing process of public awareness activities and evaluations to ensure children with special needs can receive the help they need to succeed as early as possible.

Who should I contact about making a Child Find request?
For a child birth through two years, contact your local Health Dept. For a child three to twenty-one years, who lives in Neshoba County School District, contact the special education office. If you know of a person in the Neshoba County School District age birth through 21 with a disability who is not receiving services please contact Mendy Bowen, Child Find Coordinator.
