Get Connected

Throughout Michigan, education programs and resources that enhance learning are available for most young children.  Through your public school district, special education supports and services for preschool-aged children (ages 3 through 5) with a developmental delay or disability are available for children who quality (see eligibility categories under "Services" above).  If you are concerned that your child may have a disability that is getting in the way of learning, get connected.  Your local Child Find Coordinator will explain the resources available and help determine the next best steps for your child.  A recommendation may be to screen your child or complete an evaluation to determine if your child is eligible for special education programs and/or supports.  

  • Call your Child Find Coordinator OR Call 1-888-320-8384 (the Michigan Special Education Information Line). 

Talking to your Child Find Coordinator is the logical first step.  But, at any time, if you think your child may have a disability that qualifies him or her for special education, you may request an evaluation in writing. Evaluations take place during the regular school calendar (September – May).
