Each child is evaluated, and an educational program developed to meet the individual needs of that student. The following information summarizes special services available in Morgan County.  Help Child Find locate children with disabilities.

    CHILD FIND

    It is the responsibility of the Morgan County School System to develop and implement procedures that ensure all children within its jurisdiction, three to twenty-one years of age, regardless of the severity of their disability and who need special education and related services are identified, located, and evaluated.    

    What Is Child Find?  Child Find is a statewide effort by the Alabama State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to age 21.

    How Does Child Find Work?  Early Intervention and Special Education Services work closely with community service agencies, parents, and local school systems to locate children with disabilities.

    Why Is Child Find Important?  It helps the child, the family, and the provider to plan appropriate services and link families to services for students meeting eligibility requirements in the following disability areas:

    • Hearing Impairment
    • Deaf-Blindness
    • Intellectual Disabilities
    • Multiple Disabilities
    • Other Health Impairment
