Child Find Obligation

Under both federal and CA state law, school districts are under a direct mandate to seek out and provide special education assessment to those children it has any suspicion might need special education services.

School districts sometimes use this mandate incorrectly to withhold special education assessment and services. While it is acceptable for a school district to provide services short of assessment in lieu of special education when it feels there is no evidence to warrant such an assessment, the US Department of Education has stated directly that if there is any significant evidence of the need for special education, a school district must assess.

The Economou Law Group has extensive experience working with parents whose children have not been properly assessed and qualified for special education services. If you feel that your child is not being serviced appropriately, call today at (626) 765-9607 for a consultation.
