Child Find

  • The Exceptional Student Services Department (ESS) of the Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) provides a full range of services for students who have learning needs that lie outside the usual range of instructional differentiation provided in general education classrooms.

    Do you know a child who you suspect may have a disability or has trouble with any of the following? 

    • Seeing people or objects
    • Hearing voices or other sounds
    • Talking, or is hard to understand when they do talk
    • Moving, especially when crawling, walking, or running
    • Playing or getting along with children or adults
    • Interacting appropriately with others

    If you answered yes to one or more of these statements, FUSD can provide screenings for special services for all qualified children, ages 3 to 21, who reside in our district boundaries, including migrant and homeless students, wards of the state, and private- and home-schooled students, in the following ways:  

    • For school-age children, ages 5-21, who currently attend an FUSD school, contact the child’s school administrator.
    • For children ages 3-5, and whose 5th birthday is after August 31 and are not eligible for kindergarten, contact the FUSD Preschool Evaluation Team at 928-773-4148 or
    • For children younger than 3 years, services are available through the Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) at 928-779-1679 (Northland Rural Therapy Associates).
