Department Overview

Department Functions

Child Find serves as a resource for Clark County children and their families, providing services that help identify potential special education needs and educating the community about child development and the importance of intervention.

The Child Find Project is a Clark County School District service designed to identify and evaluate the educational needs of children ages 3 through 21 suspected of having a disability or delay and not currently enrolled in the District. Parents or guardians may initiate a free evaluation of their child by calling the Child Find Project office. Once a referral is made and deemed appropriate, appointments are scheduled for an educational evaluation. Depending on a child’s educational needs, the clinicians may include a school psychologist, school nurse, speech pathologist, audiologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist or special education teacher. A determination whether a child is eligible for services is made following his or her evaluation in accordance with eligibility requirements established by the State of Nevada. The evaluation also assists in determining a child’s program placement and services. The District offers a continuum of programs and services to support children with special needs. In addition, parents will assist in developing an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) for their child.
