    The Dallas Independent School District has special services available to eligible infants, children, and young adults identified with a disability. Federal and State laws require that school districts maintain a Child Find system for identifying, locating, and evaluating individuals with disabilities (birth through 21 years of age) within its jurisdiction who are in need of special education or related services.

     

    Our Child Find efforts include advertising the availability of services through media, public notices, staff training, community health fairs and letters to private schools, physicians, nursing homes, group homes, and hospitals.

     

    Special services are available to eligible infants, children, and young adults identified with a disability who may be experiencing difficulties in one or more of the following areas:

    • Auditory Impairment
    • Autism
    • Deaf-Blindness
    • Emotional Disturbance
    • Intellectual Disability
    • Other Health Impairment
    • Orthopedic Impairment
    • Specific Learning Disability
    • Speech/Language Impairment
    • Traumatic Brain Injury
