Child Find/Child Search

DeSoto Parish Schools may be able to help a child who has a learning problem or disability.

With parental permission, services could include:

  • Free screening to learn if your child should be evaluated.

  • If screening indicates, an evaluation may be conducted to see what type of help your child may need.

  • If the evaluation finds your child to need services, services may include free special education instruction, speech services, adapted physical education, occupational services, and/or physical therapy services.

For further assistance for children ages three or younger, contact:
