Child Find is a legal requirement that schools find all children who have disabilities and who may be entitled to special education services. Child Find covers every child from birth through age 21. The Burke Center Early Childhood Intervention Program serves children with disabilities/developmental delays from birth to age 3. The public school serves all students age 3 – 21. 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. For students who are enrolled at Huntington ISD school: Please contact a campus administrator.
Preschool-Aged Children: If a preschool-aged child is not enrolled at Huntington ISD, the parent/guardian should contact the Huntington ISD Special Programs Department at 936-876-4287 ext. 2300.
Parentally-Placed Private School: Students may be referred for a special education evaluation if the private school is located within the school district boundaries and a special education disability is suspected. Private/Homeschooled parents should contact the Huntington ISD Special Programs Department at 936-876-4287 ext. 2300.
