Wishkah Valley Child Find

Child Find

Child Find is the process for identifying, locating and evaluating all children with disabilities, aged birth to 21, who are in need of early intervention or special education services. The Wishkah Valley School District provides developmental screenings to children between the ages of three and five in an effort to identify possible delays in language, motor, cognitive or social-emotional development.

If you have questions or concerns about your preschooler’s development, or wish to refer a child for evaluation, contact Laura O’Neal at (360) 532-3128.  Screenings will be offered in the spring for the 2019-20 school year.  Additionally, IDEA requires that homeless preschoolers and all homeless children be included in the “Child Find” process for early identification of special education needs. If your family is living in a temporary situation you may contact the district where you are currently staying for a screening.
