The intent of Child Find under both federal and state requirements is to ensure that all children ages birth to 21 years with delays or disabilities are identified, located and evaluated in order to receive needed early intervention supports or special education services. Public agencies responsible for providing these supports and services are obligated to actively search to "find" children who may be eligible and conduct an eligibility determination process that includes screening and evaluation according to state established criteria.
