FDLRS-South Child Find
FDLRS-South provides Child Find services by searching for children, ages birth through 21, with emphasis on children ages birth to 5 (preschool age), who may need special education services and are are not currently being served by the public school system.
In an effort to locate children ages 3 to 5 (preschool age) who exhibit disabilities or delays in development, FDLRS-South Child Find staff provides pre-school screenings of vision, hearing and, upon request, development, speech/language and behavior. Screenings are conducted in early care and education centers, as well as in other facilities in cooperation with health departments, the Early Learning Coalition of Dade and Monroe counties and other community agencies. Child Find staff also assists the Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) Pre-K Diagnostic Teams in providing comprehensive screenings to children referred to Child Find for evaluation.
