In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA), Nevada Connections Academy assists families in accessing their local County Child Find identification office when the family has concerns about the developmental progress of children aged 2.9 to 5 years of age. Such children may be eligible for special education services.
About the Child Find Program
Parents, educators, doctors, or other community members may refer a child to Child Find for assessment. However, the parent or guardian must give permission for any assessment.
When a child aged 2.9 to 5 years old is referred to Child Find, the child will be assessed by various professionals, depending on the area of concern. When the assessments are completed, the staff will meet with the parent to determine eligibility. If a child is found eligible, the parent must first consent to have special education services provided. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is then developed and Child Find helps to determine the appropriate location for services.
If the child is enrolled in Nevada Connections Academy, please contact the teacher about your concerns. If the child is enrolled in a different school, contact that school. If the child is being homeschooled, contact the Child Find office for your school district.
Please contact the school district office in your county and ask for the Child Find office.
