Child Find: Eligibility and Screening
The Maize Special Education Cooperative is committed to providing an education that appropriately meets the needs of each student. The Coop engages in age-appropriate Child Find activities that locate, evaluate, and identify students who are in need of special education services. Child Find for young children ages birth through age 5 is called a screening, and is referred to as an educational evaluation for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. Child Find usually begins with general education interventions.
