CHILD FIND
 
Special Education Referral and Child Find
 
The Canton Independent School District has special services available for eligible infants, children and young adults identified with disabilities. Federal and state laws require that school districts maintain a CHILD FIND system for identifying, locating, and evaluating individuals with suspected disabilities (birth through age 21) within its jurisdiction who are in need of special education and related services.
 
Birth to 36 months of age
 
Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) provides comprehensive early intervention services to families with infants and toddlers (birth through 36 months of age) who have a medical diagnosis, developmental delays or atypical development. ECI supports families to help their children reach their potential through developmental services. ECI provides evaluations and assessments to determine eligibility and need for services.
