Child Find

FDLRS Child Find works in partnership with the Lee and Collier County Public Schools and the local Early Steps Agency to assist in the identification and screening of children birth to 5 years of age who are not enrolled in the public school system and who have or are at risk of developing disabilities or learning problems.

FDLRS Child Find (Ages 3 - 5)

  • Provides Awareness Opportunities to ensure the public and parents are given information on milestones as to the approximate age when a child should perform certain developmental skills. Many problems that can affect a child’s learning can go undetected until a child reaches school age and precious time is wasted.

  • FREE Screenings are provided to children ages 3 to 5, not attending public school, who may experience difficulty in any of the following areas: seeing, talking, hearing, learning, physical/motor or emotional/behavioral.
  • Evaluation Services are provided through the Lee and Collier County Public School systems if developmental concerns are identified through the screening.
  • Questions? Call our main FDLRS number: 239-337-8363.
  • To schedule a screening: Call our Child Find Referral line 239-337-8199 or use our online referral form.
  • Please note that as of July 27, 2016 faxes are no longer received. Please use the online referral form or call the phone number listed above.
