The purpose of Child Find is to locate, identify and evaluate children from age 3 to 21 years of age with disabilities and their possible need for special education and related services. Child Find is a free referral and information service available through local education agencies and Region 3 Education Service Center. If you know a child ages 3 to 21 who shows signs of developmental delay, on-going learning problems, behavioral or medical problems that interfere with learning that is not currently receiving special education, call the Special Education Director in your school district or contact the Region 3 ESC Child Find Contact at 361-573-0731, ext. 352.
Region 3 ESC provides Child Find posters, brochures and writing pads free of cost to local education agencies within our region. If you are a Region 3 school district or charter school in need of these materials, please contact Valerie Matson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
