Brownsboro ISD Announces “Child Find” Efforts 
 
The Brownsboro Independent School District offers comprehensive special 
education services to eligible students ages three through 21 years and to 
children from birth through age 21 years who have a hearing or visual 
impairment. Children from birth to age three with other disabilities will be 
referred to appropriate agencies for services. All referrals are considered 
confidential, and services are provided at no cost. The parent, legal 
guardian, or surrogate parent retains the right to refuse services and are 
provided other procedural safeguards under federal and state law. 
 
Public school services include screening in areas of suspected disabilities, 
such as vision, hearing, motor skills, speech, language, and general 
development. Evaluations in the schools are provided for several areas of 
suspected disabilities, including learning disabilities, speech and language 
development, physical impairments, vision or hearing problems, intellectual
disabilities, emotional disturbances, autism/pervasive developmental 
disorders, health impairments, or traumatic brain injuries. 
 
A free, appropriate, public education with a full continuum of services is 
available. For more information concerning eligibility criteria and referral 
procedures, contact the principal or counselor of your local school or call
