Child Find Notice



Child find is a public awareness activity to locate, evaluate and identify children ages 3 through 21 years of age who may have disabilities defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ( IDEA).


Child with a disability means a child evaluated and determined eligible for special education and related services in accordance with IDEA under the following categories:

Autism, Deaf-Blindness, Deaf or Hearing Impairment, Emotional Distrubance, Mental Retardation, Multiple Disabilities, Orthopedic Impairment, Other Health Impairment, Specific Learing Disabilities, Speech or Language Impairment, Traumatic Brain Injury, Visual Impairment, and Developmental Delay.


Tishomingo Public School is responsible for locating, evaluating and identifying children with disabilities that live within the Tishomingo Public School District boundaries.  The special education and related services to be provided will be determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team members based upon that  particular child's unique needs.


If you live in the Tishomingo Public School District and have a child between the ages of 3 to 21 and suspect your child may have a disability or is exhibiting delays in his/her development you may contact Linda Holmes, Director of Special Services for the Tishomingo Public Schools.  The office telephone number is (580) 371-9190 or you may talk to your child's teacher, school counselor or principal regarding your concerns.
