Child Find Information

 

Manchester City Schools, in compliance with federal and state law, performs a city-wide child find. Child find uses screening to find students in both public school or private school located in the city, who may need special education services and supports. There are two types of screening. The first is a general screening of preschool age children throughout the school year. These screenings are on-going throughout the school year and serve preschool age children. The other kind of screening is only for school age children. A child can be referred for screening by school personnel, the family, and/or individuals in the county (physicians, child care providers, etc.) This should be done any time it is suspected that a child has a disability. Children can be screened for the following areas:

 

• Hearing

 • Vision

 • Communication Skills

 • Social Skills

 • Motor Skills

 • Behavior/Adaptive Skills

 • Academic and Pre-academic Readiness Skills/Development
