Child Find is mandated by both the federal and state regulations which contain policies and procedures to ensure that:


  • All children with disabilities residing in Pennsylvania, including children with disabilities attending private schools, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who are in need of special education and related services, are identified, located, and evaluated.
  • This includes children who are suspected of being a child with a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade.
