Child Find

Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) that requires states to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities who are in need of early intervention or special education services. To receive Early Intervention Programming or Special Education, children must meet eligibility guidelines according to the IDEA. If you suspect you have a child who may have a disability affecting them, please notify your child’s teacher (if they are in school), counselor(if they are in school), principal (if they are in school), or the special services office at 810-591-8302.

If your child is age birth to 3 years of age and you are concerned with their development, please reach out to Genesee County Early On or call (810) 591-KIDS.
