Willcox Unified School District offers Child Find screening to locate, identify, and evaluate all children who may have a disability. If you know a child who has a disability or one you suspect may have difficulty with learning, communication, vision, hearing, behavior, or motor control and coordination, please contact the special education department at your local public school district or the school the student attends.

Willcox Unified School District screens children from preschool through high school. We refer infants and toddlers with disabilities to the Arizona Early Intervention Program for evaluation and services. All Child Find referrals are considered confidential and services are provided at no cost to the family.

There will be a screening event for preschool children (3 and 4 years old) on Thursday, Oct. 22, from 8 a.m. to noon. The screening will be held at Willcox Elementary School, and will be by appointment. Please call Raydia Martin at 384-8783 or 520-507-6255 for an appointment.

For more information concerning Child Find screening, contact the principal or counselor of your local school or call Raydia Martin, Special Education Coordinator, at 520-384-8783.
