Child Search

  • About:

    Child Search is a nationwide effort to locate all children with disabilities, birth through twenty-one, who are not receiving educational services. Child Search is a part of Special Education in Louisiana schools. It is designed to identify, locate, and evaluate children who may be in need of special education services and are not currently enrolled in school. 

    Child Search Screening:

    Children from three to five years old, who are not enrolled in public school and who may be in need of special education, are routinely screened in free Saturday clinics. Please contact the Child Search Coordinator at (985) 785-3155 or the Special Education Department at (985) 785-3157 for more information.
