Child Find Efforts in North Carolina and the Department of Public Instruction North Carolina has a continuing Child Find procedure to locate all children with disabilities residing in the State, including children with disabilities attending private schools, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who are in need of special education and related services. This effort also includes highly mobile children with disabilities (such as migrant and homeless children) and children who are suspected of being a child with a disability and in need of special education, even if they’ve advanced grade levels. The purpose of this procedure is to enhance public understanding of exceptional children and youth and with special needs, to identify and locate the children and youth and to inform the public of available services. The collection and use of data to meet the requirements of Child Find are subject to the confidentiality requirements. In Charlotte Lab School a poster and brochures are available to the public regarding NCDPI’s efforts to provide information to parents, grandparents, and guardians about the Child Find Process.
