Finding exceptional support for learners who need it most.
At BVSD, we make sure that young learners having difficulties or delays in development get the help they need to be successful in school. The purpose of the BVSD Child Find program is to locate and identify preschool-aged children ages birth to five who are having difficulty with their development in one or more of the following areas:
- academic (early learning/concepts, thinking, problem solving, preschool access skills)
- communication (articulation, language, fluency and voice)
- motor (fine and gross)
- self-help; and/or
- hearing and vision
Children can be referred to Child Find by a parent, doctor or other agency. The process may begin with a developmental screening and when appropriate, a comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluation to determine eligibility for preschool through special education.
BVSD Child Find is a program available to families who live within district boundaries. If you live outside of BVSD attendance area, please contact your local school district’s Child Find office.
Child Find is available to families at no cost.
