Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

CLAS Special Collections—Child Find Materials

About the Child Find Collection

Welcome to the Child Find Materials Special Collection. This collection from across the U. S. and its territories provides a listing of Child Find brochures, handbooks, and materials for distribution to families.

This collection highlights local and state efforts aimed at identifying young children who need special services. Materials in this collection are to raise awareness of families, medical professionals and child care workers about the indicators or "warning signs" of disabilities or developmental delays in young children.

We at CLAS are especially interested in materials targeting specific cultural groups and localities. We have searched for materials in a number of languages and for those which have unique design or presentation.

*We have received permission to provide full text options for all of the Child Find materials. Therefore they can be downloaded or printed.

We encourage you to adapt the information and format of these materials to your own situations and contexts. As you do so please remember to credit the originators of the material in your work.

Before you use these materials, please keep in mind that:

These materials have not been reviewed by CLAS. They are included in our database for the purpose of sharing information about innovative practices.

We caution you to carefully examine materials in other languages (original or translated) as they have not been reviewed by CLAS staff for their accuracy or appropriateness for their intended users or audience(s).
