The eLearning course "SHARE WHAT YOU KNOW Lifespan Development: Special Education Services 0-5 years Old" discusses the requirements of Child Find Framework and the responsibilities of school district/charter schools. The Child Find Framework requires, local school districts and charter school to have in place or develop a system to reach the population of at least 3 years old but not older than 6 years old to determine if enrollment in special education is needed. Both entities must ensure the child has the opportunity to receive a “Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) for any child. To make sure the child’s rights are not violated the school district/charter school must also follow the following frameworks: 1. Visual Impairment Framework, 2. Auditory Impairment Framework, 3. Noncategorical Early Childhood, and 4. Deaf-Blindness Framework. If the child meets the eligibility for special education services, then one of the following needs to be created; Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) or an Individual Educational Plan (IEP). This would also include having in place a transitional plan based on IDEA-C and IDEA-B Preschool Programs.
