What Is Child Find?
Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA ’04) that requires states to locate, identify, and evaluate all children with disabilities, ages birth through 21 years, who are in need of early intervention or special education services.
The Arizona initiative for child find is referred to as AZ FIND.
