Child Find

Spartanburg County School District Six Early Childhood Special Education Services provides children ages 3-5 developmental screening through Child Find. We provide evaluations, as necessary, and work collaboratively as a team with parents to develop individualized services across a full range of community-based and school-based options.

Schedule a Screening

The first step is a developmental screening.

For a child from birth to age 2-1/2 years old, contact South Carolina Babynet at 573-6719 for information regarding scheduling a developmental screening.

For a child age 2-1/2 years old through 5 years old, not enrolled in a public school program, contact Spartanburg School District Six Child Development and Family Services Center at 576-4886 and speak with Beth Thomas.  Ms. Thomas will set the schedule for Child Find Screenings.

A multidisciplinary team will meet with you and your child to perform a screening in the areas of fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, speech/language, and cognitive development to determine if further assessment is needed.

Child Find Screening

Child Find Screenings are held by Spartanburg School District Six on a regular basis and at our Child Development and Family Services Center by a team consisting of a nurse, a speech/language therapist, and a school social worker. Once making an appointment you will receive a packet in the mail. Please bring the completed packet and the following forms to your appointment.
  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card
  • Immunization Record
  • Proof of Residency
  • Medicaid Card, if applicable
Parents must give written permission for screenings. An adult must accompany the child throughout the screening. The screening team will complete:
  • Vision and Hearing Screening
  • Developmental Skills Screening
  • Communication Skills Screening
  • A review of all information gathered
Following the completion of the screening, the team will review the screening results with you and make recommendations and appointments with you if any follow-up observations or evaluations are necessary while your child plays in the toy area.
