Clarendon School District 3 Child Find


All children are entitled to a free and appropriate public education and equal opportunity to learn. Child Find is a series of activities designed to seek out families and children who may need special services.

Child Find is targeted for children ages 2.5-21. Some children are born with physical and mental conditions that can interfere with normal growth and development. Fortunately, many problems can be minimized or overcome if help is sought early.

If there appears to be a delay in any area of your child’s development, you can seek information and assistance from your local school district.

For more information, please call Clarendon School District Three Office of Special Education Services at (843) 659-2188, ext. 2200.

Preschool Screening

Do you know a child who might have any of these problems?

• A child who doesn’t talk or who can’t be understood.

• A child who is uncoordinated or has difficulty in walking, sitting, standing, or using hands.

• A child who is always unhappy or demonstrating unsatisfactory relationships with peers/parents.

• A child who has trouble attending to a task.

• A child who doesn’t hear or see well.

• A child who has difficulty learning in school.

The purpose of special programming for young children with disabilities is to provide early intervention services for the child. This early intervention can prevent some disabilities from becoming more severe.

Screenings for vision, hearing, speech and language, and developmental delays are provided by the school district, administered by trained personnel, and are free of charge.

Parents with concerns about their infant or toddler should contact the Office of Special Education Services (843) 659-2188, ext.2200.
