Franklin County Schools promotes Child Find program

In cooperation with the Alabama State Department of Education, the Franklin County Schools system is promoting a state program aimed at providing services to children with disabilities.

Child Find, according to the ALSDE, is a statewide effort to “locate, identify and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to age 21,” carried out jointly with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation.

Through Child Find, early intervention and special education services work closely with community service agencies, parents and local school systems to locate children with disabilities. Child Find can connect children and their families with service providers to plan appropriate services for students meeting eligibility requirements, such as those who experience

  • Hearing impairment
  • Deaf-Blindness
  • Intellectual disability
  • Multiple disabilities
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Emotional disability
  • Speech and language impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Specific learning disabilities
  • Autism
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Developmental delay

For more information about Child Find, contact the local school system representative, Jennifer Whitfield at 256-332-8814 or call toll free, 1-800-543-3098.
