FDLRS/PAEC and the local school district co-sponsor Child Find Pre-K screenings to identify children with disabilities and/or special needs. Eligible children must be: ages 3 to 4 years old, suspected of having a disability, and not enrolled in public school.
Each child is screened in the areas of vision, hearing, speech, language, and overall development. Screening appointments are scheduled every month in each county.
The parent or legal guardian must provide permission for the child to participate in the screening. Screenings are scheduled by appointment only by calling the Child Find office at 638-6131 ext. 2310 or toll free 1-873-877-7232 ext. 2310. This office serves Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Walton, & Washington Counties.
