The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to have a Child Find system in place with processes and procedures for identifying, locating, and evaluating all children birth to age 21 in need of special education and related services, including children suspected of having a disability. All Delaware school districts have a Child Find team available to assist with screening, evaluating, and providing recommendations for children 3 to 5 years of age. Please contact the school district below in which the child resides for information and referrals:Appoquinimink 302-376-4404 302-479-2600 Rodney 302-697-2173 Henlopen 302-645-6686 302-857-4241 – Newark 302-454-2047 – Wilmington 302-429-4175Colonial 302-429-4088 302-846-9544 River 302-436-1070 x1163 Alternate number 302-732-1346Lake Forest 302-284-9611 x123 302-875-6105 302-422-1650 x217 Alternate number 302-424-5474Red Clay 302-992-5574 302-629-4587 x1635 302-659-6287 302-337-7990 Alternate number 302-337-7998
