Child Find

I-DEA is responsible to locate, refer and identify all children, ages 5 to 21, who are suspected of having a disability and are enrolled in our schools.


Do you suspect that your child might have a disability?

  • If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, behavior, is experiencing slow development typical for his/her age, physical impairments, or learning difficulty, he/she may be a child with a disability. Early identification and intervention is essential to help ensure school success.
  • For children ages 3 to 5, Developmental Screenings are held in your local school district. Please contact your local school district special services department. If you need assistance please contact the Special Education Director at 208-672-1155.
