Child Find

Through the Child Find program, NW BOCES and Horizons hold free health fairs and perform assessments and screenings to aid in early detection of children with special needs. Child Find is a component of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that requires states to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities, aged birth to 21, who are in need of early intervention or special education services. The Child Find website is mainly focused on Part C of the IDEA, the Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities. However, much of the information and many of the links listed on the Child Find website can be useful in conducting child find for all young children, not just child find for infants and toddlers. If you have questions about Child Find for children birth to 2 years and 9 months, contact Horizons in Routt County at (970)871-8558 and in Grand/Jackson Counties at (970)887-1141.  And for children ages 2 years and 9 months to 5 years, contact the preschool in your community (see phone numbers below).
