    Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which requires an ongoing process for locating, identifying and evaluating children suspected of having a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability, who may need special education and related services.

    Do you live in the Aledo ISD school district and have a concern about the development of your child or know a child who has a disability?  Are you the parent of a pre-school (3-5 years) or school aged child and have concerns regarding your child’s physical, speech, and/or emotional development? If so, we encourage you to contact the District Special Education Department at 817-441-5199 to discuss your concerns and learn more about the referral process. There is no charge for this service.

    Is your child school age (5-21 years) and experiencing academic problems which could interfere significantly with educational success? If so, we encourage you to please contact your campus assistant principal.
