Project Find Infant and Preschool Evaluation Services
The Project Find Service provides developmental assessment for preschool age children not already enrolled in a public school program to determine if they qualify for special education services. Project Find is a collaborative service with the Early On program and will generally see children after they turn 36 months of age (Early On will generally see children under 36 months of age). A team of professionals will provide evaluation to determine eligibility for special education. They will assist the parent in investigating appropriate programs available for their child. Any interested parent or care provided may refer their preschool age child suspected of significant developmental delays in the following areas:
To inquire about services or make a referral to Project Find call: (269) 539-5152.
- Speech and Language
For children under three years of age a referral may be made directly to the Early On Program: (269) 539-5128 or (269) 539-5129.
If your child is enrolled in a private or public school in Van Buren County and you have a concern regarding a significant delay or suspect a disability, you should contact their teacher or school administrator.
Concerns regarding a preschool age child currently enrolled in your local school district Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) should also be referred to their teacher and local school administrator. VBISD special education service providers are assigned to each of the GSRP in our local districts.
