Child Find Public Service Announcement

Every child has a right to an education. If a child has a disability or developmental delay, early intervention is especially important so that the child can receive the support services he/she needs to become an independent learner and self-sufficient individual.

School districts and the First Steps Kentucky Early Intervention System within the eight-county Lincoln Train ADD District Area are working together to ensure that children and youth with disabilities are identified and enrolled in an appropriate educational program. Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington County Schools and this area’s Early Intervention System have designated April as project Special Child Month. Each school district offers special education programs to meet the individual needs of children beginning at age 3. These services are free of charge.   You may contact your local school district regarding free educational screening for your 3 or 4-year-old child.

If any citizen knows of a child from birth to 21 years of age who has a disability and who is not receiving specially designed instruction, that individual is urged to call his/her local school district (children ages 3-21) or Point of Entry (ages birth to 3). Children of any age who are referred for services will be evaluated and provided with the help they need to prepare them for school.

Kentucky’s public schools and First Steps Early Intervention Programs are for all of Kentucky’s children. It is important that we all work together to see that each child receives the services he/she needs to be successful in life.
