Children with Disabilities

Search for Children with Disabilities     

    School districts throughout Ohio are participating in an effort to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities, birth through age 21. For children birth through age two, a disability means that a child has a delay in one or more of the following developmental areas: adaptive behavior, cognition, communication, physical development, sensory development, and/or emotional development.

    For children ages three through five, a disability means that a child has a documented deficit in one or more of the following developmental areas:
                communication skills, hearing abilities, motor functioning, social-emotional/behavior functioning or
vision abilities.

    For school-age students, a disability means a person having one or more conditions such as autism, developmental handicap, hearing handicap, multi-handicap, orthopedically and/or other health handicap, severe behavior handicap, speech and language handicap, specific learning disability, traumatic brain injury, or visual handicap. Many unidentified children with disabilities are preschoolers.
