Child Find in Kansas involves a screening process for children from ages 3-5, and a general education intervention process for children from kindergarten through age 21. Schools in conjunction with parents use these processes to locate, evaluate, and identify children who may need special education and related services. Children in need of special education services should be identified as young as possible and also as soon as possible after the concern is noted. The earliest possible identification of education or behavioral concerns will diminish the impact of the concerns on the child's education.
If you have concerns about your three year old's skills and abilities (cognitive, speech, language, fine or gross motor, etc), compared to their same age peers, please contact the Office of Special Services at (913) 288-4100 to submit a Child Find referral form In order for your child to be screened, they must meet all the Turner USD 202 enrolled requirements.
