Child Find

Spartanburg County School District Six Early Childhood Special Education Services provides children ages 3-5 developmental screening through Child Find. We provide evaluations, as necessary, and work collaboratively as a team with parents to develop individualized services across a full range of community-based and school-based options.


Schedule a Screening

The first step is a developmental screening.

For a child from birth to age 2-1/2 years old, contact South Carolina Babynet at 573-6719 for information regarding scheduling a developmental screening.

For a child age 2-1/2 years old through 5 years old, not enrolled in a public school program, contact Spartanburg School District Six Child Development and Family Services Center at 576-4886 to schedule a screening appointment for your child.

A multidisciplinary team will meet with you and your child to perform a screening in the areas of fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, speech/language, and cognitive development to determine if further assessment is needed.

Child Find Screening

Child Find Screenings are held by Spartanburg School District Six on a regular basis and at our Child Development and Family Services Center by a team consisting of a nurse, a speech/language therapist, and a school social worker. Once making an appointment you will receive a packet in the mail. Please bring the completed packet and the following forms to your appointment.

• Birth Certificate
• Social Security Card
• Immunization Record
• Proof of Residency
• Medicaid Card, if applicable

Parents must give written permission for screenings. An adult must accompany the child throughout the screening. The screening team will complete:

• Vision and Hearing Screening
• Developmental Skills Screening
• Communication Skills Screening
• A review of all information gathered

Following the completion of the screening, the team will review the screening results with you and make recommendations and appointments with you if any follow up observations, or evaluations are necessary while your child plays in the toy area.
