Early Childhood Child Find

Our Early Childhood Identification and Services (ECID&S) program identifies children with potential special education needs and educates the community about child development and the importance of early intervention.

Child Find is the process of identifying children with potential special education needs as well as educating the community about child development and the importance of early intervention. Child Find services are provided for children ages 20 months through 5 years by the FCPS Early Childhood Identification and Services (ECID&S) program.

The FCPS ECID&S program staff members serve as liaisons providing assistance and information to local community preschool, child care, Head Start, and Family and Early Childhood Education Programs (FECEP). ECID&S staff members also perform community outreach to increase public awareness of the importance of early intervention, and to ensure that all members of the Fairfax County community are able to access Child Find services, if needed.

Child Find screenings are free to children ages 20 months to 5 years old who are Fairfax County or Fairfax City residents.  To determine the early childhood assessment site to contact please call 571-423-4121.
