• HCS Looking for Children with Disabilities

    1. Help Child Find locate Children with Disabilities

    What is Child Find? Child Find is a statewide effort by the Alabama State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to age 21

    How does Child Find work? Early Intervention and Special Education Services work closely with community service agencies, parents, and local school systems to locate children with disabilities. A toll -free number is provided for parents or other persons interested in information about referring a child from birth to age 21. 

    Why is Child Find Important? It helps the child, the family, and the provider to plan appropriate services and link families to services for students meeting eligibility requirements in the following disability areas: hearing impairment, deaf-blindness, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, speech language impairment, visual impairment, specific learning disabilities, autism, traumatic brain injury, developmental delay, and emotional disability.

    For more information about Child Find, contact your local school system, local coordinating council, or call Susan Riggs at 205-486-9231 for ages 3-21 or for Birth through 2 years old, call 1-800-543-3098.


    Haleyville City Schools will be destroying special education records for students that have been exited from our system for at least 5 years. Anyone wishing to claim these files must do so by calling Susan Riggs at 205-486-9231, extension 5,  between the hours of 7 am and 5 pm, Monday – Thursday.  Tentative date of destruction set for August 31, 2020.
