    Child Find

    I think my child may have a disability: what now?

    Child Find is a district program to help determine if your child has a disability and help provide appropriate services

    Are you concerned that your child may not be developing typically? Parents who suspect their child may have a disability should contact the Child Find program. Children can be evaluated to determine if they have a disability or developmental delay.

    Parents should contact Child Find if they:

    • Have questions about whether their child has a disability
    • Are concerned about their infant, toddler, or preschooler's development
    • Know their child has a disability and are looking for appropriate educational services
    • Would like to know how to help their school age child succeed in school

    Evaluations for infants and toddlers
    Children are evaluated for a suspected disability differently depending on their age. See the chart below to learn how to request an evaluation of your child.

    Infants and Toddlers (0-2 years old):
    Lake Washington School District contracts with the Kindering Center in Bellevue and Wonderland Developmental Center in Shoreline to offer free evaluations for infants and toddlers, birth through two years old. This evaluation will help you to determine if your child is following a typical pattern of development. If appropriate, the Kindering Center or Wonderland Development Center will provide early intervention help for your child.

    For assistance, or if you have questions:

    Preschool Age Children (3-5 years old):
    Developmental evaluations are provided by Lake Washington School District for children between the ages of three and five to identify possible delays in language, motor, cognitive, or social-emotional development.

    If you have questions or concerns about your preschooler's development, or to refer a child for evaluation, contact Child Find: Linda Pankow, Family Support Specialist, 425-936-2846.

     

    For more information about the preschool programs offered at LWSD, see the Preschool page on this site.

    School Age Children (5-21 years old):
    Lake Washington School District identifies children ages 5 through 21 who may have a disability. A parent, staff member, or outside person may refer a student at their local school

    To refer a student, contact the school psychologist or the LWSD Special Services department at 425-936-1201.
