Child Find is a federally established, comprehensive system designed to assure that each child, regardless of disability, is educated toward his or her maximum potential. The purpose of Child Find is to locate, identify, and evaluate infants, children, and young adults through the age of 21 who may have a developmental delay or other disabilities.
Paris ISD offers comprehensive special education services to eligible students, ages 3 through 21 years of age and to children from birth through ages 21 who have a visual or hearing impairment. Children from birth to age 3 with other disabilities will be referred to appropriate agencies for services. All referrals are considered confidential and services are provided at no cost to the family.
If you know a child who may have difficulties with learning, speech, vision, hearing, or who has physical or health impairments, please urge parents or guardians to call the Child Find contact at their local campus. If you are the parents or guardians and do not know how to contact the campus directly, you can obtain the number from Paris ISD Special Services at 903-737-7494 or email Joi Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
