The purpose of Child Find is to locate, identify and evaluate children from birth to 21 years of age and their possible need for special education and related services. Child Find is a free referral and information service available through local education agencies and Service Center Region XIII.
Children learn at different rates, but some children have significant difficulty. We’re here to help you access services to meet the unique learning needs of your child. If you are concerned your child may be learning, playing or interacting differently from others, please call our office at 512-570-0350 or email [email protected].

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) & Title Programs
On Dec. 10, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. ESSA replaces its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). Under this act are the following subsections:
- Title I, Part A
Improving Basic Programs provides supplemental resources to local educational agencies (LEAs) to help schools with high concentrations of students from low-income families provide high-quality education that will enable all children to meet the challenging state academic standards.
