Schools announce Child Find effort

The Unicoi County School System and Special Education Supervisor Chris Bogart have announced Child Find efforts to identify children in the county, ages birth to 21, with disabilities or who may be intellectually gifted.
Disabilities may include the following: autism; speech or language impaired; deaf or hearing impaired; blind or visually limited; orthopedic impairment or other health impairments; learning disabled; severe emotional disturbance; intellectually disabled; or developmentally delayed.
The school system strives to locate, identify and evaluate children with suspected disabilities or who may be intellectually gifted living in Unicoi County, including those students who are homeless, migrant, or attending a home school or private school in the system.
Anyone knowing of a child who may have a disability or who is intellectually gifted should contact Bogart at 743-1611. Information will be used in planning and providing free and appropriate public education programs for students with special needs. All information will be handled in a confidential manner.
