Child Find

Child Find assists in locating, identifying, and obtaining services for children who have disabilities or special needs. The goal of Child Find is to assure that all children, birth through 21, who need special education and related services, receive a free appropriate education. Child Find is the entry point for Exceptional Student Education & Support Services for birth-to-five-year-old children and their families in Broward County.

Children ages birth to three, who are in need of Early Steps services, are referred for Part C Services. These services are for infants and toddlers who have disabilities or developmental delays, and their families.

Child Find also provides free screenings for children ages 3-5 who may have special needs. The screenings are coordinated with the area preschool assessment teams.

If you are concerned about the development of a child under the age of five, you may call 754-321-7200
