The Oberlin City School District conducts Child Find activities in an effort to identify, locate and evaluate all children, birth through 21, who may have disabilities living within the Oberlin City School District. A child with a disability is defined as a student having a cognitive disability (mental retardation), a hearing impairment (including deafness), a speech or language impairment, a visual impairment (including blindness), a serious emotional disturbance, an orthopedic impairment, autism, traumatic brain injury, another health impairment, a specific learning disability, deaf-blindness, or multiple-disabilities.
The Oberlin City School District is asking for your assistance with this important effort. When children are school-age (grades K-12), the district works to identify and evaluate these students so they can receive special education and related services. However, when children are of preschool age or younger, they often go unidentified because parents may not be aware of possible programs and services available for their child. Services are provided without charge to families who live in the school district. The purpose of Child Find is to identify children who are having difficulty in their development and to provide services to them, when it is appropriate.
Please help us in our effort to serve those children who may be in need as early as possible. If you know of a child who may have one of the disabilities listed and is not currently in school or receiving services, please contact Susan Alig, Director of Pupil Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 440-776-4656.
