Federal and state laws require all students (birth through age 21) with disabilities, residing within the SSISD district, who are in need of special education and related services, including children with disabilities attending private schools and children who are homeless or are a ward of the state, to be identified, located, and evaluated, which is a process referred to as CHILD FIND.

“It is an annual, ongoing process to help people become aware of the special services that are available through their local school district. SSISD would like for our community to be aware of these services available,” said Robin Castro, Sulphur Springs ISD Administrative Assistant to the Special Programs Director.

Child Find referrals may be initiated by a parent/guardian, doctor, teacher, relative or friend. If you are concerned about a child’s learning, contact the SSISD Special Programs Director at 903-885-6230. You may also contact any administrator in SSISD at www.ssisd.net. For birth through age 3, contact Children’s Center-ECI of Lakes Regional Community Center at 903-454-0300.
