    We’re Here to Help

     

    Child Find, a service to assist families of children who may have special  needs, is here in South Carolina to see that every child has that chance.

    Some children are born with physical and mental conditions that can interfere with their growth and development.  Fortunately, many problems can be minimized or overcome if help is sought early.  Child Find connects children from birth through age 21 with services tailored to the special needs of the individual.

    If there appears to be a delay in any area of your child’s development, you may seek assistance from Child Find.  Even if a child is not yet school age, he or she may benefit from screening and evaluation.  All needed screenings and evaluations are free of charge.

    If any of the items below seems to apply to any child that you know, please call Child Find, the central BabyNet office, or Richland County School District One to discuss your concerns.
