Project Find is a program of active outreach by the Michigan Department of Education and local school districts. Its purpose is to offer services to children and youth from birth through 25 years of age, who may have delays in physical, social, emotional, communication, and/or cognitive development. Project Find provides information about educational programs and services, and helps families secure evaluations.
These educational consultations, evaluations, and services are provided with parental consent. Confidentiality is strictly maintained. As part of a public education*, these services are free of charge.
*The "Child Find" requirements of Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education (MARSE) rules are followed. The programs and services are related to a child's or youth's overall development and educational performance. The Project Find Coordinator can be a parent's first contact when seeking an initial evaluation.
