School System Seeks Children Who Need Services

The Putnam County school system today is advertising their participation in the federally mandated "Child Find" program. Officials say it's an activity in which school systems are required to search for and try to identify children, who live in the district and who may be eligible to receive what are called "early intervention" services. Putnam County schools provide speech and language therapy to a variety of students, many of whom come through referrals from doctors, day care center directors or others. If you know any disabled individual ages three through 21, including children attending private school, who are not presently receiving an appropriate service, you can call the school system's central office at 526-9777 for more information.
