Eligibility: How do you know if your child really needs special education?

Eligibility is a process that is dictated by a law called Child Find. A lot of parents aren’t familiar with Child Find, but essentially it requires school districts to identify and provide services to all students with disabilities no matter where they go to school. So that includes children that are homeschooled, children that go to parochial schools, and children that go to other private institutions.
