|The intent of Child Find is that all children from birth through age 21 with delays or disabilities are
identified, located and evaluated to receive the supports and services they need. Public schools and the
Arizona Early Intervention Program are responsible for “finding” eligible children and providing services
needed for them to reach their developmental milestones or meet their educational needs. When
children are "found", they are referred to a specialist to screen their development. The screening helps
"identify" any areas of concern that need to be evaluated further. In order to receive early intervention
or special education services, a child must be evaluated to confirm they have a delay or disability that
falls under state definitions. If needed, the child is evaluated using state criteria for specific delays or
disabilities. If eligible, the Arizona Early Intervention Program or a public school system will offer early
intervention or special education services according to the child's needs.
The Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) is Arizona’s statewide, interagency system of
supports and services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities and their
A child's most important developmental years are those leading up to kindergarten. First Things First
is committed to helping Arizona kids five and younger receive the quality education, healthcare and
family support they need to arrive at school healthy and ready to succeed. Visit their website for more
