Child Find

It is the responsibility of Cambridge Public Schools to identify any child who may have a disability who either:
  • resides in the City of Cambridge and/or
  • is in a district approved home-school program or
  • who attends private school within the geographic boundaries of Cambridge (resident or non-resident)
Child Find is an ongoing process used by the Office of Student Services to identify children and youth from the ages of 3-22 who may be eligible for to receive special education and related services because they have a disability. Cambridge Public School’s Office of Student Services is responsible for locating, identifying, assessing, and evaluating (with parental consent) students ages 3-22, who may have a disability to ensure they receive needed special education and related services.

The Office of Student Services is responsible for conducting Child Find activities to inform the public that every child with a disability is entitled to a free, appropriate, public education designed to meet the child’s individual needs.

If you have a concern about your child, contact your child’s school or the Office of Student Services at 617.349.6500 to discuss your concerns and determine if further assessment is warranted.
