FDLRS Child Find, in coordination with school districts, assists in locating children who are potentially eligible for services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and links them with needed services.

Child Find services help to promote general public awareness of programs and services available for young children who have or are at risk of developing disabilities. Service coordination for diagnostic screening, training, and support may also be provided.

FDLRS Miccosukee Child Find offers FREE Developmental Screenings for children ages 3 through 5, who are not currently enrolled in public school and reside in one of the following counties: Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Taylor, and Wakulla. Vision, hearing, motor skills, cognition, speech, language, and behavior skills are screened.
