Project Child Find


The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act includes the Project Child Find mandate. The Project Child Find mandate applies to all children who reside within a state, including children who attend private and public schools, highly mobile children, migrant children, homeless children and children who are wards of the state. Child Find requires all school districts to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities.

The effort is coordinated by Stokes County Schools Department of Special Programs and State Department of Public Instruction to:

  • Locate and identify children and youth ages birth through 21 with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services.
  • Inform parents and/or guardians of the services available from their local school system and other state community agencies.

If you know of a child and youth with disabilities who are not in school or receiving special assistance, you can help by encouraging the parent/guardian to contact the Director of Special Programs at 336-536-9010.
