Child Find is the process of locating, evaluating, and identifying all children with suspected disabilities, aged 3 to 21 years old, who reside within the boundaries of Chehalis School District. This includes those attending private schools, homeless, or migrant students. WAC 392.172A.02040

If you suspect that your child has difficulty learning, thinking, moving, speaking, seeing, hearing, managing emotions, or using self-help skills, we are here to help.

If your child is less than 3 years old, please call or email the Summit Center for Child Development at 360-736-0086 or
If your child is 3-5 years old and not yet in kindergarten, please contact us at to schedule an appointment for a FREE developmental screening.

If your child is between the ages of 5-21 years (already in kindergarten), please contact your child’s school and ask for the school psychologist, or reach out to the principal or assistant principal. You may find that information below.
