Child Find refers to the process of "finding" children who may have a special education disability that entitles them to special education instruction and services. Child Find covers every child from birth through age 21. The Burge Center Early Childhood Intervention Program serves children with disabilities/developmental delays from birth to age 3. Huntington ISD serves all students ages 3 through 21 who have a special education disability that entitles them to special education instruction and services. The school must evaluate any child that it knows or suspects may have a disability with parental consent.
Enrolled Children: Referrals for special education evaluations may originate from the parent, guardians, and/or teachers. It is best to submit this request in writing if possible. For students who are enrolled at Huntington ISD: Please contact a campus administrator.
