The Sheridan Child Find Program offers FREE developmental screenings for children three to five years of age, who show delays in development that could interfere with their education and learning. Families must live within the Sheridan School District boundaries to access these services. The team may consist of an early childhood special education teacher, occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, physical therapist, and/or a school social worker. The screening provides general information about a child's current speech/language, motor, social, and pre-academic skills.
Following the screening, parents will receive feedback from the Child Find Team. If screening results indicate possible delays in development, the Child Find Team will recommend further assessment.
Screenings/Evaluations are held at the Sheridan Early Childhood Center

Beginning on May 1, 2022 all referrals and evaluations for children under the age of 3 with developmental concerns or disabilities will be coordinated through Early Intervention Colorado. This means that Sheridan School District will no longer accept referrals for children under age 3 beginning May 1, 2022. This change is being made to ensure equitable access to developmental support for children across Colorado and to make Early Intervention services easier for families and providers to navigate.
Making a referral to Early Intervention is easier than ever. Depending on a person’s preference, referrals can be made online, by phone or by fax:
