Child Find for Preschool Aged Children (3-5)
Triad offers free screening services for children 3-5 years of age as a means to assist parents in sorting concerns or questions they may have regarding their child's development. A screening is not a comprehensive or in-depth evaluation. It may assist in ruling out certain concerns or providing direction for further investigation. If any areas are identified as a concern, parents will be offered ideas, suggestions, and/or recommendations including possible further evaluation. If an evaluation suggests a child may be in need of formal developmental support, a variety of services are provided through Triad's Early Childhood Special Education program, including speech-language therapy and preschool developmental classrooms.
If you have questions or concerns about your preschooler's development, or to refer a child for evaluation, contact the Early Childhood office at 667-8851 x6137.
Child Find for Children attending a Private or Parochial School (ages 3-21)
If you are a resident of Triad CUSD #2 and your child attends a private or parochial school outside of Triad CUSD #2 boundaries, the public school district in which the private or parochial school resides is responsible for the child find activities. If you have questions or concerns about your child's progress and/or suspect a disability, please speak to the staff/administration at your child's school. If found eligible for special education services, your child may be entitled to receive services through the public school district where your child's private or parochial school is located.
Child Find for Home Schooled Children
Triad CUSD #2 is responsible for conducting child find activities for students being schooled at home. Parents who have concerns about their child's development and/or suspect a disability may contact Linda Kowalski, Special Education Director, to discuss concerns and any required assessments or services your child may be entitled to through Triad CUSD #2.
