Clinical Prevention and Intervention Services

  • Clinical Prevention and Intervention Services are located within the DPSCD Office of Exceptional Student Education. The focus of services include student referrals along with individual and comprehensive evaluations. We service children and students from age 3 to 26 according to IDEA Part B and MARSE legislative regulations. The Department of Communication Disorders, the Office of Psychological Services, the Office of School Social Work and Project Find are located in the East Wing of Frederick Douglass Academy.

    Child Find is a component of IDEA that requires states to identify, locate, and evaluate individuals with suspected disabilities, age birth thru 21, who are in need of early intervention or special education services. In Michigan, these free educational services are provided to eligible individuals up to age 26. Child Find provides information and resources to the families and community agencies about special education programs and services. Child Find will assist families in obtaining these services by processing referrals with a request for special education evaluations to the appropriate departments within the school district. If you are in need of services provided under Child Find, they are processed through the Clinical Prevention and Intervention Services Department.
