The logo for the Florence Unified School District - Child Find

 

Every child is entitled to a public education, regardless of disability. Children with disabilities may go without services because families are not fully aware of their options. If you know of a child, birth to age 22, who is not receiving any education services or feel that your child may be in need of special education services, please contact your local school or call the Special Education Department at 480-987-5390.

 

The identification, location and evaluation of students suspected of having a disability includes students attending private schools, students who are transient, students who have been suspended or expelled from school, home-schooled students, students who have not graduated from high school with a regular high school diploma and those who may be in need of special education and related services even though they are advancing from grade to grade, and regardless of the severity of the disability.

 

Florence Unified School District conducts a Child Find Preschool Screening once a month. Parents, if you are concerned with your child’s development, have specific questions and/or would like to make an appointment, please contact our Partners Preschool at 480-987-5380.  All students must be at least 2 years, 10 months – 5 years old and live within the FUSD boundaries.

For Children Ages 2 Years 10 Months Through 5 Years Old

Child Find is a process to "find" children who may have a delay in development or a disability in any of the following areas:

  • Vision and Hearing
  • Motor Control or Coordination
  • Behavior or Social Skills
  • Speech or Language Skills
  • Thinking or Performing Tasks, and
  • Adaptive Behavior.

Do you suspect your child or a child you know may have a disability?


Does your child:

  • Have trouble seeing people and objects?
  • Have trouble hearing voices and other sounds, or remain unusually quiet for long periods of time?
  • Have difficulty talking and pronouncing words properly?
  • Move about with difficulty when crawling, walking, or running?
  • Learn slowly and have difficulty understanding?
  • Have trouble playing with other children or getting along with adults?
  • Have other special health problems?

If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions and live in the boundaries of the Florence Unified School District, check here for more detailed information and to complete a Child Find Survey.

Should you need further assistance, please call 480-987-5380, Option 2. Or, you can email us at childfind@fusdaz.org.
