Childfind
The Issaquah School District's Childfind Program is designed to locate and offer assistance to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children, between the ages of birth and 21, who may have developmental delays or learning problems. Early identification of problems can make a big difference in a child's future school success.


Identification for Infants and Toddlers
For infants and toddlers, birth to age three, the Issaquah School District has contracts with local agencies to determine if your child is following a typical pattern of development. If your child demonstrates developmental delays, he/she can receive intervention services through these birth to three agencies. For more information, contact ECE Transition Specialist Jackie Funk at 425-837-4078 or email her at funkj@issaquah.wednet.edu.

Identification for 3-5 year olds
Free screenings are provided for children between the ages of three and five to identify preschoolers with possible delays in speech and language, fine and gross motor skills, cognitive/concept development, adaptive skills, and behavior.

If you have questions or concerns about your preschooler's development please call our District Childfind Intake Line at (425) 837-7197 or email Jackie Funk at funkj@issaquah.wednet.edu
