Tools for Improving Child Find

OSEP Part B 619 Child Find Self-Assessment (CFSA)

OSEP, with the collaboration and support of the ECTA Center and DaSy Center (for Sections II and III), developed this voluntary self-assessment tool to help Local Education Agencies (LEAs) strengthen their ChildFind system with the goal of ensuring children eligible for special education and related services are referred and enrolled. This toolkit can also be used by State Education Agencies (SEAs) to look across LEAs to support understanding and documenting their work around child find regulations, identifying best practices, and improving the efficiency of their Child Find efforts.

Making Sound Preschool LRE Decisions

The IEP process includes requirements and actions that ensure IEP teams have the information needed to discuss and consider access to and participation in high-quality inclusive settings for every young child with a disability during IEP placement discussions. These documents list important actions in the IEP development process along with guiding principles and practices that should inform placement decisions for young children with disabilities.
