Child Find Services

Child Find is an ongoing process of locating, identifying, and evaluating children ages birth through twenty-one who may have developmental delays or disabilities, who are in need of special education and related services.  All children identified with developmental delays or a specific disability are entitled to a free, appropriate public education designed to meet his/her needs. Stafford County Public School engages in a public awareness campaign in order to identify all children who may be suspected of having a developmental delay or disability.   This includes students enrolled in private schools, who are home-schooled, who are highly mobile, migrant, or homeless, or who will be incarcerated in a regional or local jail for more than ten days. Referrals for special education can be made by anyone concerned with a child’s educational performance, including a parent, child’s teacher, community agency, or school official.
